The Starter switch does dual function to OPEN the headlight circuit to provide a few more amps for cranking. The HL goes OUT.

Grease + dirt + time = poor connection.

There is a PDF for lube and clean starter switch > Rattlebars originated the info.. Look in Step by Step board.

Has your Tripmeters reset??

Clean and tighten battery terminals.

Have a voltmeter to test the charging voltage??

How old is the battery??

I use this to find things most often> Google "vtxoa: starter switch" many responses should appear.
