Jauten1 - Sounds to me like your stator is blown. It's the stator putting out voltage that turns the headlight on. It's possible that your regulator is shorting out, and dropping the voltage of the stator to nil. In any case, you need to follow the fault finding PDF to find out if your stator is the culprit, or the r/r. If it is the r/r, you need to replace it asap, before it takes the stator with it.
Pantherdan - yours isn't the stator, so ignore the above.
