As the title, when I'm driving with a dipped headlamp sometimes this will switch to mainbeam when I change gear. This will only last for a second and reverts back to dipped once the gearchange is completed. It does not happen with every gearchange and can occur in any gear moving up or down the box.
I can't understand how there could be an electrical connection between the two and would appreciate any advice on solving this problem, as it must also be puzzling the drivers in front of me!
The bike is an 02 XL650V.

Sounds like like something weird happening between the clutch switch (neutral switch?) and passing light circuits. Check connectors, wiring & switchgear.

I was hoping for a simple fix and piguglyshandydrinker you have provided it :thumbup:
The clutch lever has some up/down play in it and sometimes catches the passing switch and pulls it in with it, so a little fettling will cure the problem.
Thanks for the replies.
