    So I went for a spill not too long ago, bike is ok for the most part, but one issue I came across if the high beam switch. When the switch is in the off position, the indicator is off, but the bulb is on and when I move the switch to the on position, the high beam turns off but the indicator comes on.

    I am not too familiar with electrical work, as I have only changed turn signals before, but I read it might be the relay?

    Any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.

    Sorry about your spill, have you done anything since that might have affected the wiring? Pinched some cables? what bike and year?

    It's a 2014 Bonneville and no, I rode home after then noticed it when I went for another short ride recently. I popped in and tried looking at the wiring, I didn't see anything that looked pinched or folded.

    How about inside the light switch housing?

    So I was able to finally check the switch housing and the wiring to the light. Everything looked fine, so I did the easiest thing and replaced the bulb.:expressionless: I didn't realize they were dual filament, and the high beam was just burnt out.
