Thread: Headlight stays on 2000 R1100R

    Headlight stays on 2000 R1100R

    I have a 2000 where the light stays on when you shut down. Even if you remove the key. I am not seeing any relay in the fuse/relay box. Ideas?

    The symtoms you describe points to a sticky load relief relay. Swap it with the horn relay (same type)
    A sharp rap with a screwdriver handle will usually release them when stuck.
    This happens on higher mileage machines.
    Chances are that will fix the issue.
    Replacements are under $20 at the dealer.

    I used the tag cloud and searched for "headlight on". This thread came up:

    Sure seems to be pointing to the relay.

    I swapped out with the horn relay. We will see if the intermittent problem goes away. Got one coming so I don't have to worry about the horn not turning off

    Thanks again to everyone for chipping in and helping. Now I need to put a mechanical pressure gauge on the oil port to see if I am getting false warnings. Then on to the R1100RS to figure out the low fuel light not working . The a drive shaft on my R1200C.

    Lots to do for the spring and plenty of time to do it. Should have retired sooner
