Hello fellow 919 owners! (it's my first post on this forum).
I come looking for help because I have a problem that's bugging me.
The other day I was installing a new horn so cagers could actually hear me, and I must have done something wrong because my head light went out...
But I am not sure if it was related since I don't know exactly when it went out (whether it happened when I was working on the bike, or if it was right after).
Anyway, it could be a wire that I pulled, a short circuit that burnt something, a fuse...
I've been looking at this diagram to try to figure this out: http://www.cb750c.com/publicdocs/CB9..._Schematic.jpg
So far, here is what I checked:
Main 30 Amp fuse: OK
Head Light / Back lights 10 Amp fuses: OK ((( BUT, no juice seems to be flowing through the Head Light fuse (it's under the seat right?) )))
Light bulb: OK
Headlight switch: OK
Starter switch: not tested yet.
I stopped there because I couldn't find the cable for the starter switch (unless it's black and red, not black and orange like on the diagram).
One good thing is that if I run a wire from the battery (+) to the blue&white wire that goes to the Headlight Dimmer Switch, my bulb lights up (and the switch works).
Some details that matters: the bike starts just fine. I have everything working (break lights, signals, speedo, horn, and so on). the headlight is the only thing not working.
Another detail: at roughly the same time the headlight went out I started hearing a noise in the front every time I hit a small bump on the road. It sounds like there's a bunch of coins in a metal box jumping around
Could it be the ignition switch?
Is there any other fuses that I missed?
I'm hoping a wizard among you will know exactly what's wrong
(If I have to, I'll the run a wire with a fuse from the battery straight to the headlight switch
but i'd rather avoid that).
