    Hey guys I call on all you across experts. My headlight has stopped turning on the Parker globe comes on when you turn the key on but the headlight won't turn on. Now common sense tells me it's the headlight relay but after a quick search I couldnt find it. Anyone know where it is or if it is even that at all
    Thanks guys
    Phil

    There's a relay (not sure what it's for though) right next to the headlight on the passenger side if you like (right side looking from the front of the bike).

    That relay you speak of is for the indicators

    I had a quick look at the fuses and didn't notice any that were blown

    I might have to strip the plastics off so I can have a good look around to see if I can find any bad connections
