At 90k kms, some in wintry road conditions with salt and subsequent corrosion, which might fully well explain all this... But anyway, now as I turn the switch on, there´s no headlights (low or high, it does not matter, flipping their switch does nothing), but only parking lights and instrument panel lights come on. Then start the engine (the battery is only about two years old, and has been maintained during winter storage, would be very surprised if it´s causing any problems), fires up nicely, but still no headlights. Then wait a bit... I would say anywhere between 3 and 20 seconds, and voila: there´s the headlights. And then those headlights seem to work while riding, in fact I´ve been reaching over the instruments while riding just to see, that they are still on. Have not noticed once, that they would not be on, while riding. This bike did have a previous problem with its headlights maybe 5-6 yrs ago, the shop spent some time trying to find the culprit, in the end it was either a connector below the fuel tank, or inside the RH switch box, can´t remember which one. But back then, there was absolutely no headlights at all, until it was solved. What´s happening now, seems downright weird. The headlights should come on, when you put the switch to "ON", not after you have fired up the engine, AND waited a little more.... problem is, right now is the short riding season over here, and good time for bigger overhauls would be next Oct/Nov onwards. I´m not sure if I trust it not to short circuit at any time, and possibly cause an even bigger problem. Even if not, I don´t like the idea, that the lights could go off at any time. Anybody ever had a similar problem with their DL650 headlight, and if so, did you possibly find out, what was causing it?
