Headlight out indicator
I don't know about anyone else, but it seems my '06 loves to eat headlights. I have noticed that if the headlight flashes (almost like a flash bulb) when I turn the ignition on it won't be long before it goes out. So the last time it went out, I replaced it with an HID and it's been working great for ab out a month now.
Well, this morning I go to start the bike and when I turn on the ignition I notice the flash again. What the....???? So I push the starter button, the bike fires up and sure enough no headlight. Now, I'm thinking...wtf???? This is HID. It shouldn't be burnt out already. So I turn the ignition off, wait a sec or 2, then turn it back on and hit the starter. And lo and behold, I have a headlight. Hmmmm....odd. So I get on the bike and get ready to back out of the garage, and what do I see? The headlight indicator staring at me. What the heck is going on? I still have my HID low beam and the high beam works.
Has this happened to anyone else? How can I reset that indicator?
