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.
