The most likely place to check is the connector at the end of the wiring harness from the left handlebar switch. It is located behind the radiator shroud. The headlight system involves a number of contacts and connectors that can cause problems. A headlight relay kit will bypass those problem areas since the stock system only has to power a relay instead of the lights.

There have been many threads about headlight problems that more often affect both lights. The starter switch contacts or the connectors under the rubber cover in the fairing are problems more often than the situation you are having. http://www.stromtrooper.com/v-strom...uestions-discussions/58397-no-headlights.html is one such thread.

You can solder a bypass around it or try contact cleaner and crimping the female connector a bit for a stronger connection. Do get a relay kit ASAP to avoid future problems. It will produce a bit more light too.
