Main beam fault
« on: 28 December, 2019, 07:43:25 PM »
The main beam on my 09 CBF appears to have a lazy relay. When you hit the main beam switch there's a few seconds delay before the light changes. It switches off immediately though when required. Am I right in thinking this is just a lazy relay that will be fixed by replacing it?
Thanks
John

Hi again. Could it just be the switch? It's lazy to go on but goes off straight away when the switch is actuated which made me think of a relay.

The relay is located behind the right rear cowl and can be heard to click the instant the main beam is switched on. The main beam has two switches located in the left handlebar control - A thumb operated main/dip beam switch on top and an index finger operated headlight flash switch at the front. Do you experience the same fault when operating the main beam on both switches?

The flasher button works instantly. But if I put the main beam on from the rocker switch that's when the delay happens. If I then switch it to dip the change is instant.

Thanks. I'll give it a clean out and see if that changes anything.
Cheers

Thanks for the tip. 10 minutes with switch cleaner and everything works just fine now.
Thanks
John
