A Cry for Help - Headlight v's Power
I need to shout out for your theories with an issue I am having on my 1998 ZX6R Ninja (Single Headlight)
I have looked through some other threads, and got some ideas, but none are exactly the same as the problem I am having - when it comes to electrical issues I am at a bit of a loss.
The problem is, when I turn on my headlight (after the bike has been running for a few minutes) it blows the fuse (10A) if I put a 15A fuse in, it cuts the power to the headlight but does not blow the fuse - sometimes if I keep revs over 3000 the light stays on, but sometimes it does not ?? If the bike is in tickover and I turn on the headlight it can cut the engine. This happens in both dry and wet weather. All other electrical lights / components work perfectly.
I have replaced the battery for a brand new one, the rest of the bike is Stock. What I want to do is be able to put a 10A fuse in and not have it blow when I turn on the headlight (stating the obvious).
I have a couple of thoughts in mind
1. Voltage Regulator is faulty and needs replacing (any idea where I could source a replacement one?)
2. Wiring loom has a damaged cable somewhere and needs replacing.
3. Some other fault, I haven't thought of.
So I put out the question to all you clever people out there, please help me find a solution, without me having to spend more than the bike is worth to repair it.
