I had a HISS hiccup after the winter service, v similar actions from the light - sometimes full brightness, sometimes dull & flickering.....
I stripped/lubed the kill switch starter button & slight improvement then wiggled the connector for the HISS pickup (r/h/s of clocks i think) it's the one with waterproof connector & that sorted it, so lubed it & i think i tightened the female connectors (gently with pliers).
Been fine since
Blooming troublesome bike - last time was the headlight bulb went.
