aloha - maximum ignoramys newbie to the fore again.
now that winter is drawing in and having to do some night time commuting having probs with lights/electrics.
headlamp is quite dim and when apply brakes it dims to the slighest of illumination. when use indicators the headlamp flashes slightly for a few times and then nothing.
don't know much about these things but scouring haynes manual and chatting with others suggestions are:
1. battery needs replacing
2. battery needs charging (using daily for short [10-15min] journeys so may not be getting the charge up)
3. problem with earth
4. problem with wiring (maybe a short or similar)
if anyone has had this prob before or is knowledgable about such matters do let me know how i might remedy this and save me from bumping off hedges or worse on daily ride home
