Park light problem
I charged up an old battery and put it in the bike to see if all my new light connections, new indicators etc..., all worked ok. Everything seemed good. Indicators blinking, headlight, tail and brake light all worked well.
The problem arose when I tried to turn off the headlight, or more specifically the park light. The main headlight turns off fine, but the small park bulb wonít switch off. Switching it off at the switch block has no effect, and I can turn the key to any spot on the ignition switch and it just stays on. Itís only when I disconnect the battery that it turns off.
Iím guessing that the problem lies with the ignition switch, which feels pretty worn.
Would this be correct, or should I be looking somewhere else for a fault?
Alternately, should I just disconnect the park light? Iíd much rather just do that than replace the entire ignition switch, or could just disconnecting the bulb cause other problems?
