Check that they're plugged in, that the headlight relay is working, and that the bulbs are not burned out.

Maybe check the connections where the nose harness connects to the main harness of the bike. Is your gauge cluster working?

And as demented said, check the relay.

everything is working except the low beam side. i'm guessing that with that side not working, its also not getting any power to my high beam side as well. ive tested everything and the only place i'm not receiving power is at the ends of the prongs where they connect to the actual bulb itself.

If you're not getting power at the factory headlight connection, try pulling out on the start button after starting the bike. If the switch is stuck in just a little bit... then the lights won't come back on.
If that doesn't work, click the headlight link in my sig...

You need to trace everything that you did and either find what is not connected, what is wired wrong, or what is broken.

I think it might be the relay behind the headlights. I'm getting power all the way up to that point
