Finally my bike is ready for the season! I still have to set the suspension, since I installed the R1 shock this winter.

But I still have one problem.
When I either flip the high/low beam switch or use the "passing light button", the blue indicatior bulb in the dash just blinks. It doesnt stay on when high beam is on, or if i hold the "passing light button" pressed in.

I have done the headlight relay mod in the past.

This is what i have tried so far.
Changed the bulb in the dash
Changed relays for the headlight mod
Looked over all cables, nothing loose or damaged found
Opened both the yellow and white gang connectors under the right fairing. Found some corrosion in the white one, cleaned the pins.
Opened the LHS switch pod and checked.
Tried both with bike running, lights on/off while pressing the passing button.

The error remains, and now i am out of ideas,

Anyone have any suggestions on what to try next?

Thanks!

How fast is the flash rate of the HB indicator?
How many times per minute?

Also, when it goes off, does it turn off instantly, or fade slowly?

No, it just blinks once, just as the relay clicks when I switch from high to low beam... Nothing else..

Forgot to mention.. both low and high beam works.. it's just the light in the dash that is giving me a headache.. 🤔

Since you have already changed out the relays. Test each circuit separately to see what happens.

Remove the low beam relay. Power up. Switch between beams. Note how the HB indicator behaves.

Do the same test with the high beam relay removed.

Thank you, @Six5 !
