Hi everyone.
I have a problem with my headlight occasionally not coming on. The bike still starts up and runs ok. I don't see any loose wires at the bulb socket. Has anyone had this problem? Is the problem in the ignition switch or the headlight relay ( if there is one ) if there is a headlight relay where is it located and what does it look like??

I spent most of my money on bikes & booze
and the rest of it I just wasted.

I could not find any relay in the Honda manual electrics diagram-no mention of one in the text either. However the starter button switch may be the culprit here as it disables the headlight upon engine cranking. "bout all I can think of right now.
