That would be true if it was just the two of us

Turn the switch to "off" before shutting down the bike and leave it there.

I do happen to know that it is not true. But I do see where you went wrong this time. You seem to equate a self-important twat with being intelligent. It is not true.

Which switch? My headlight does not have a seperate unique switch. If I turn the main off, the tail lights go off. I will have to go outside and verify, but I do not think I can replicate a condition where the bike is energized, but the headlight is not. I am honestly curious if I am missing something here...

@Ordinary Biker : @Seņor Gar isn't so bad, just have to get used to him, kind of like @Goat . With Gar a third of the time he's giving out bad advice to prank new guys, another third of the time he has really good knowledge and insight, a third he's plain ol' wrong, and the last third he's having trouble reading big words. Jus' gotta know which third it is. ~

Regarding the switch, use the headlight switch. When shutting down switch it to High Beam, hit the red Engine Kill switch, then turn off and remove the key. When starting it back up insert and turn on the key, wait 2 seconds, pull the clutch lever and shift to neutral, turn the EKS to Run, wait 3 seconds, hold the Start button until the engine starts, wait 2 seconds, then switch from High Beam to Low Beam and the headlight comes on. If you don't switch from High Beam the headlight stays off.

Damn Hedge, where did you learn to add fractions ! Who's gonna take the word of someone who can't add single digits ???

As far as being "plain ol' wrong", how the fuck would you know. The second half of the previous post on the headlight is total fabrication.
You don't have a Fury to backup your claim.

When I get something wrong I own it and correct it. Feel free to point out any I've missed and I'll set it or you straight, as I always do.

I would promise to give everything he says proper due consideration, but I have already done that.

I guess I will just have to take your word on this...

Don't take my word against it, just read a wiring diagram

I think it may be a software bug as I don't see that kind of voltage with my lithium battery and the same battery monitor. If Paul could try it on iOS it should prove or disprove my theory.
