I have a really strange issue. I noticed at the weekend my headlight was out, not just main or dip bulbs, but both.

So far I have fit new bulbs, put in all new fuses, tried swapping relays around from known working relays and still no main or dip beam is working.

All other lights are working normally.

Checked the plugs behind headlight unit, all appears fine, albeit I have not tested them electrically, no signs of loose wires etc.

What else could it be? what is common to both main and dip beam that could affect both?

Starter button turns headlight off when starter is operated ?? I've seen this on some Japanese bikes, where the starter normally closed headlight power circuit fails. Starter contacts still OK....but no headlight.

I don't know if this is the case with the later MVs, but it is a thing to check.

thanks. got it working. really strange. I switched the high low beam on/off a few times and the same with the kill switch. Disconnect battery and reconnect. Started bike and both lights sprung into life.
