    Wiring for K1200GT Low Beam

    My xenon bulb burned out. I found the quick access cap and replaced it, but now the low beam does not work. It looks like it is powered by yellow and yellow/white wires. Anybody have a clue as to where I can test it back to the battery? I traced it to a bundle of wrapped wires that seem to lead to the battery, but I don't really want to have to open it up unless it's the only way.

    Before tearing into any wiring, I'd connect a gs911 or dealer MoDiTec and make sure the canbus is happy and allowing that circuit to power up. Also, make sure you are allowing the system self-checks to complete before trying to start the bike. On my K13GT if I rush that process it will sometimes fail to activate the HL and throws a warning lamp on the dash, tho I've not had that happen since replacing the battery...
