I feel like this may be a stupid question, but here goes...
Went to ride my 09 Vstar 1300 this morning and found that I had no low beam. High beam was working fine so I rode to work and back using that.
Stopped on my way home at a Yama dealer and got a new replacement bulb. I am not much of a mechanic, but figured out how to replace the bulb.
Started her up and had both high and low beam and no extra parts, so I considered that a victory.
One small doubt in my mind - when I keyed it on, the headlamp was off until I turned over the motor... Is that right? For some reason I thought I remembered the headlamp coming on when the key was turned on. Now it is only coming on once the bike starts....
All my other lights come on with the key, but headlight isn't coming on until the engine is running...
Am I remembering incorrectly? When should the headlamp come on? With the key or the engine?
