There is, I believe, a jumper behind the headlight that can be removed to make the light switch work, I haven't done it on my bike.
Hello All.Last Friday I took delivery of a new Bullet Classic C5, in Black/White. Here are my observations. Definitely a very cool bike. I love the quick nimble handling on back roads. IMHO it is actually more fun to ride than the Road King. You ride on a Road King, you ride with the Bullet!One downside is that there is no Trip Odometer on it. I am customary to use it to mark fuel consumption and know how much fuel is left. I think this bike would be a great candidate for a Belt Drive conversion kit, both primary and secondary. It would benifit greatly from the higher efficiency of the belts. I estimate the Rear Wheel HP would increase by about 10 percent. And would reduce the Maintenance even more.One question I have from other C5 owners. On the Handlebars, throttle side, are the switches for the Headlight/Parking Lights. They do not do anything? Also wondering if I received the correct owners manual. Mine is for the Bullet EFI. on the 2nd page it indicates part number 597444 Dec/'08. Is there an owners manual for the C5 or is this it?Happy Riding and light winds!
I noticed the Headlight runs off of the Battery and not the Alternator, so the engine does not need to be on (ignition does) to turn on the lights. Good Feature.
The lights go out when the ingition key is switched off so the battery should be ok. Dead Battery means no start. I wonder how much voltage (amperage) the fuel pump actually needs to pressurize.
