trying to access your schematic...but am suspecting there IS a high beam relay~ this one may be burnt or disconnected~ if you've got a schematic in your instruction manual could just follow the wires there~

I had a Healy 3000- 3 carb, 1961- it was way fun- I wrecked it- on a serious level, check the wiring to the lamp bucket and the high beam switch- on an even more serious level, you must fall to your knees with great emotion and pray to: "Joseph Lucas, Prince of Darkness"
