This is my V2 headlight story.
I purchased my V2 used and noticed the PO had a headlight globe fitted by his local dealer.
After a few weeks of ownership I lost my low beam, I thought back to his globe change and thought I found the reason he had sold the bike it must have ongoing low beam problems.
When I opened things up to change the globe the plug on the back of the globe had melted, things had obviously gotten hot.
Having a good look I found the brass female spade fittings had no tension, they were soft.
I determined when the original globe was changed they had wobbled the plug enough to spread the contact points, this caused heat and that heat in turn soften the fittings causing more heat and melting the plug.
I did not change the globe but I did replace the spade fittings and all has been good since.

Live life on the edge you will see more that way.
Ridding a motorcycle keeps things in balance.
At the end of each trail and at the end of each day history is made.
