88 dr 200 electrical problem

Hi Gang - my 88 dr 200 really dims the headlights at any engine rpm much above idle, the headlight is much brighter at idle. battery is NOT good, engine runs fine.


Do the lights flicker at idle? Check the battery terminal voltage at idle and off idle.

the lights are very bright at idle and do flicker a little. as you rev up the bike the headlightds really dim. putting on the brake light will brighten them back up considerably.

I have gone thru all the wires and switchs and have been unable to find anything obviously wrong.

Replace the battery.

you were correct, that solved the problem
