Yep, sounds like a spider bite to me........maybe S7 or S8 up around the headlights :think:

And if it is s6 take it to a stealer as it is covered by Yamaha recall :dance:
Of all the things that I've lost, my mind is the one I miss the most.

Hello all,
Latest is, Yamaha have found the issue on the second try :clap: :clap:
BUT I believe this is a definite manufacturing fault as the connector was within the harness, not exposed to the elements in any way showed no sign of corrosion purely a bad connection. As I have owned many Yamaha's and never had this issue before I am further convinced this is a Yamaha issue.
I am considering a letter to Yamaha australia with many signatures to it because the safety of all riders is at definite risk of serious injury or worse. Losing both headlights at night with no warning should never happen as they should be on seperate earth paths. In addition from what I read on a number of forums a lot of Owners have had considerable expense to rectify this issue. This is not a lack of maintenance problem purely manufacturing.

I welcome others thoughts on this
