Hi, I wonder if anyone can help. I’ve recently noticed an issue . When I start the bike up the high beam warning light is on but bulb not on . As I drive off the light goes off and appears to work again as Normal. I’m hoping it’s not an expensive job to rectify. Does anyone have any advice ? Many thanks

You will have a standard halogen bulb on a '14 so replace it with suitable unit. If I had to guess your filament isn't making good contact and the vibrations while taking off make it make contact.
