Electric problems POST R/R fix
I registered last week and was about to post concerning my electical problems, but found a few threads from people with almost identical problems; bike cut out, wouldn't restart, no electrics, battery was completely fried etc...
i'd only had the bike for a few days (2010 Street Triple R) so the dealer collected it, took it away, fixed it and returned it on wednesday. however, since then i haven't ridden it because of knee surgery i had on thursday so i'm out of commission for a month or so. i just went out to the garage to start it up to check everything was ok and to give the engine a bit of a run and i noticed the dipped headlights aren't coming on. rears are fine, indicators are fine, and full beam are fine, as are all other electrics, just the lights aren't coming on with the ignition like they should.
not had a chance to contact the dealer concerning this yet as its sunday, and my technical experience of motorbikes is currently around the 2 week mark, but is there any logic to the idea that the dipped lights, being in use when the problem struck, have been blown, and simply need replacing? the fact the full beams still work tell me nothings been disconnected or broken.
as i say, aside from these specific lights, everything else about the bike seems to running as normal.
