Yea, i've been reading a few other topics that he has is mitts into. I myself and a total dunce when it comes to electrical stuff, so I personally dont see how checking a switch is simple... Just beyond me is all im saying. Thanks!
As to my solution, I did unplug the wire going from the starter button, to the dimmer switch.
What I did was just unplugged the Blue/White connector from the dimmer switch side of the harness altogether. Then tapped the connector off with electrical tape. So far it is working, but I thought I had this issue figured out before, so I am not getting throwing down my happy dance just yet. However, thanks to Walter's help, I believe this will solve my issue. If I were using the stock headlight, this would do nothing for me. Being that I do have an aftermarket headlight setup, this is a solution....
Will come back to this thread after a few more rides, and give a final update. Thanks again to everyone who helped out!!!!
