On my street '01 sv650s I've got a weird problem. If I turn on the highbeams, the headlights turn off entirely. (like if I do this at night, I lose all light)
Headlights are unaffect, just when I put on highbeams
When it happens, the blue highbeam light does not light (only way I know in the daytime)
Fuse is fine.
I have swapped all of the bulbs involved at this point, and the problem still keeps reoccuring. I never know for sure if it is solved because it usually works after swapping bulbs.
This comes and goes. It worked normally for 2-3 months and I thought the problem had disappeared, but reappeared last night on a late night Highway 9 trip. It seems to stay in one state or another for at least a week. This has been going on for about 2 years now.
Is there anything else I should check or swap?
