Dead headlight - please help if you can
My '08 has twice fully discharged the battery now, once when I accidentally left it on, and today is the second time - I agree that once fully drained a battery is done, it's only a (short) matter of time, as I believe this accounts for today's incident, since I keep my battery attached to a tender at all times when not in use. I replaced said battery with a new one today.
Here's the major issue: BOTH times the battery has gone dead, the bike's headlight has been MIA upon revival of the bike. I recall reading online somewhere that someone else experienced this same phenomenon, and the issue was traced to the headlight relay. My local shop came to the same conclusion about mine (I didn't mention what I'd read about the relay to them - I wanted an unprejudiced diagnosis).
Does this mean the Versys' headlight relay is toast any time the battery is fully drained?!? How is this possible? Is there a recall for this by chance? Seems like a major flaw to me if this is indeed the case.
Please help with any info as I am about to order another $85 relay! Thanks.
