I don't what happened to my scooter, one day the headlights just stopped working. It's not the bulbs, I've already checked those. Every other light turns on, just not the headlights. Really stumped need help if possible, thanks.
Ok you've come to the right place but please forgive me, My ESP isn't working today! So with that said what make and model? I probably have a wiring diagram for it and with a few simple questions can tell you what's wrong.
Now when you say your other lights are you also meaning the tail lights? JRR
I had this problem last year after I needed a new stator because the winding that sends the pulses to the CDI for ignition (two wires) shorted. Upon replacing the stator, the windings for power generation (3 wires) was underpowered (battery would still recharge @ 14.5 V). I think I got a 50cc sized stator for my 150cc bike (same physical size and # of of windings, different output current). The symptom was that all lights worked (they ran off the battery) except for headlights, tail light (rear running light) and the auto choke. These three components run off the stator (not the battery). Actually, the headlights would glow dim for a minute, and then go totally dark.
When I replaced the stator again with one sized correctly for my bike (YY150T-12) , all was fine.
So, I recommend you check the outputs of the stator for proper resistance and output voltage when running.

If his tail lights are working then no stator needed as the headlights and tail lights are on the same circuit along with the auto choke. His post indicates that all of his lights are working except the head lights. Either a pulled wire, bad connection or a bad hi/low beam switch. Again if he'll fill us in on what scooer then he can be steered in the right direction. JRR
We have had a few good bulbs not work because the contact tabs in the light socket were bent out from pushing the bulb into place...but if your headlight just went out, and the bulb was replaced (bad filaments can still look good), I woud check wiring connections behind the headlight housing...

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
