2001 CBR600F4i cuts out when I turn the lights on

Postby BULLET » Tue 12 Jul,2016 14:40

Hi can anyone help me with this. I went to work yesterday and the bike was fine, all lights working.
When I finished work I started the bike and then put the lights on and it stopped the engine.
turned them off and started it again, lights on and engine stopped again.
I turned everything off and turned the key to the on position didn`t start the bike and turned the light switch to on and nothing no front and no rear lights.
I turned the key to the off position leaving the light switch in the on position and then turned the key to the on position and no noise like normal when it is in the on position. I did notice that the high beam was on the dash no matter what position the high beam switch is in but no lights front or rear.
Ive taken the kill switch apart and had a look but couldn`t see anything and gave it a squirt with electrical contact cleaner.
Ive cleaned up the contacts on the head lights.
Help please as I have no way of getting to work now.

Sounds like headlight relay to me.
Google where it is on the bike and pull the plug.
If it doesn't cut out when you flick the switch you've found the fault.
If there's another relay that's the same, try swapping another for the headlight one and see if that solves it.
