Flickering Headlights

This morning on my way to work, the low beam headlight on my 2008 KLR started flickering and would intermittenly go off, forcing me to ride with the high beam on. I replaced the bulbs, which were still good by the way, and I clean the connectors on the wires and made sure that everything was properly connected. Has anyone else had or seen this before, and if so, what was it? Other than that, I've had 14,000 trouble free miles out of my bike other than tires and regular maintenance.

Yes, this has happened to me. I finally traced the problem to my battery connection. I had installed the battery maintainer cable and the battery cables were not making good contact. In my case the gauge lights would flicker as well as the headlight. Good luck!
