I have a 2000 Sportster 883 XLH with a non-working headlight. The daytime light (the little 5w as it's Europeam) light comes on, but the H4 bulb doesn't work. I have changed the bulb for a new one, still the same.
Should the headlamp illuminate when the ignition is turned on, or only when the is engine running? Previous bikes I've owned where the headlamp only works when the bike is running.
Anyways, this will help me diagnose the problem with a volt meter. With the key turned to on, I get zero through the three pronged plug going into the H4 bulb. Next stop, the switch itself?
Between the switch and the headlamp, is there a plug or does the harness from this switch split somewhere behind the lamp unit?
Which colour is the hi and lo beam wires going into the plug?
