hey guys, i have an 2000 R1 and recently something is wrong with the headlight. the light wont turn on. i checked the bulbs any everything including the fuse and it seem fine. is there any kind of relay that is doing this? beacause i start to learn how to power willie and when i come down, it slammed. is this the cause? any suggestion from you guys is greatly appreciated.

I had a similar problem. I thought it was the relay, but it wasn't. Check the connection between the headlight wire loom were it connects to the harness. It is located under the left front panel near the fuse box. There you will find a connector. Disconnect it and check both sides of the connector. When I checked mine, I found that at some point the connector got to hot and the plastic around the pin that supplied power to the headlight melted inside the connector. So no contact was being made for the headlights to come on. I was not able to remove the melted plastic, so I just jumped the wire around the connector.

Good luck, hope you get the problem fixed.
