    Head light question

    My 94 TW headlight is fairly bright at idle, but when I take off and the RPM's increase it dims out to almost nothing. The battery is shot but it kickstarts fine. Any suggestions?

    It's your battery. I did a test on my TW200 and discovered the voltage DROPS with an increase in RPM when the battery is dead or missing altogether. I don't presume to know why, just that it does. Drops to 9 volts.

    +1 on the bad battery being the likely culprit.
