Firstly I have to say the headlight is one of the best I have ever had on any bike. The main beam really lights up the whole road and the dip is more that adequate. However, the dip switch is very tender and I often find it has gone on to main beam with the slightest touch. Me, being clumsy, while using the indicator I guess. 
Is this a common feature or is my bikes switch "not right".

Hi Tom, are you catching the switch with your index finger? I've never noticed mine being particularly easy or hard to switch between low or full beam.

I think I must be doing that, although I have never noticed that I am doing it. 
The switch is not 'loose' but it takes not much pressure to flip between dip and main.

As Sim says Tom you must be catching it by accident? Mine is a fairly noticeable Click so it may get heavier with use possibly?

It was a looooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggg time ago Morgan, first new GT380 I had from Granby Motors in Ilkeston. It was just one of those things as it could also be started whilst in gear but the combination of key in worng position, kill switch off & it being brand new to me made me miss all the obvious things, did'nt do it again I can tell you!  2014 C800 headlight beam switch? 2516569736
