I am trying to do some custom work for a front headlight on my ZX 11

When I turn the key on, I am not getting voltage from the front head light wiring. But I remember some bikes need the bike to be running or at least hit
the start button before the front headlight comes on. Is that the case with the 11 ?

Thanks
Todd

My headlight on my 1991 zx11 turns on when the ignition is in he on position. When I turn the key the headlight goes out, but when the bike starts the headlight turns back on.
The only time the headlight does not remain on is when I bump start the bike in gear without using the starter. Then the headlight will stay off. However. If I hit the starter button real quick with even so much as a tiny jolt before bump starting in gear the headlight will remain on after starting. This is good to remember if you have not got enough power to start the bike and have to push start it togethome in the dark!
