How Does a Motorcycle Work?

Headlight Switch

  • When you turn on your bike, the headlight comes on automatically. The Headlight Switch controls whether you show dim or bright lights. Most riders choose to run with brights on during the day and dims at night. This is done so that motorists (cagers) will see you better.
  • Some riders use headlight modulators that flash the headlights continuously. These are currently legal throughout the USA.
  • Some older bikes have an on-off headlight switch as well.
