I'm new to the forum and just returning to biking after a 30year break (I know! What was I thinking).
Towards the end of last year I acquired a nice red, '91 K75RT with 40K. I did a spline lube, cleaned it up nicely and I'm loving the ride. A couple of weeks back my headlight went out, so I replaced it with a new H4, but still no light. I suspect the switch as being the culprit, but don't know for sure–I'm not very mechanically/electronically minded.
This problem happened immediately after I'd left the bike out in the rain one day.
Is there a chance that water somehow got into the switch and caused a short of sorts?
I've opened up the switch, but can't find anything–Heck, I don't even know what to look for.
I would appreciate any input.
