Default Enlighten me, please . . .

I'm looking at the XC and wanted to know about the electrical side of things. When you turn the ignition to "On" without starting the bike, does the headlight come on, or does the bike need to be started first before it illuminates?

Thanks

Headlight comes on when key is turned to start position.

Yep. But most are wired to kill the light when you hit the start button to allow full power to the starter.
