hi ya'll, it's been a while since i've been here but i have a question for all you techs and 1800 owners. i am replacing my headlights again, it's a 2010. i ride a lot already 4,000 miles this season. last year the left headlight burned out so i replaced both of them. the left one is out again so yes i am replacing both of them. am i noticing a pattern here, i saw on the archive that someone else said his left headlight was out and he was talking about how to replace them. i was wondering how many 1800's have the left light go out, is there something going on here or is it just coincidence :?

I also have a 2010 but have yet to change a headlight.. Perhaps it is a tad bit loose when seated thus burning out more for you..
Good luck.

I have a 2004 with almost 80,000 miles on it I bought when it was new. I had a right then a left low beam go out in the second year I had the bike. Since replacing the lights I haven't had any issues. 2 years ago we made the trip to Alaska and back on some pretty rough roads.

I notice the original lights had more/better supports for the filaments than the replacements did. However I haven't had one of the replacements go out yet so that may have no bearing on the issue.

Make sure they are seated well and do not touch the bulb itself. If you do touch it use an alcohol wipe to clean off the bulb. Halogen lights get very hot and any contamination on them will result in damage to the bulb.

And be sure not to touch the bulb with your naked finger. The natural oil on the finger is supposed to be a real bulb killer.
