Sounds like a fault in the starter switch?

You will need to trace the wiring to make sure where the problem lies.
PM me you email and I will send you the schematic for the 85I

Do you get high beam? or have both high and low gone.

If taking it apart and putting it back together solved the problem, sounds like the contacts just need a good cleaning inside the switch.

Kevin is referring to the switch itself, not the switch housing. If you are going to open it up, do that in a controlled area.
The little springs have been known to escape. Once they are free, they never come back.
