Hi Guys,

This morning to work I realised that my low beam does not work anymore. Do you know if warranty covers it or should I fix it myself? Maybe it is a sign I should put HIDs. I hope this is because of the bulb and not electronics or something.

Strange that this happened after only 6000 miles.

Cheers!

FWIW, a H7 bulb runs like $10 for a standard bulb just about anywhere. If it is worth $10 bucks to you to not have to deal with the dealer, I'd try the bulb first. It is super easy to replace, although, I found the plastic cover on one side of my R3 - can't remember which - to have been molded incorrectly I believe and was almost impossible to get off. I had to shave mine down a bit, but I doubt this is a common problem.

Otherwise, I'd just swing it by the dealer and have them deal with it. That's what a warranty is for!

Meh, I'd imagine a good dealer would just replace it. Wholesale cost on halogen bulbs is something like $1-$2 a piece. A few bucks here in there in customer service is a great investment into that customer's next purchase.
