Yep, agreed. A crook earth stopped the indicators, and an overvolt or vibration killed the headlamp. RR
Yes, could be. In fact, when a bulb is to die, it dies. Even on a Honda Civic. My battery is first notch. The harness is maybe 3 years old. And it does work really good. I think the vibrations are the faulty factor here. I had to rework the tail light twice as the " rivets " holding the " refractor ? "failed. In the headlight bucket, it seems all good and tidy. Yet, the turn signals went out. I just pushed back every single connectors..and the turn signals came back.
I am not really complaining. But when a bulb fails, it is just not a question of going down the next day to the local auto parts store.
It is a question of ordering from a vintage bike store an overpriced bulb and the extra shipping cost. Everything with vintage bikes does take more time and money.
When I die, my kids will be left with some bikes....and 10,000 lbs of various parts.
I love this Triumph. Every beat gives me pleasure, versus a modern bike. It just seems like there is a new topic to explore....every week !
