Both headlights out =(

Not sure what happened but they were working and after i got the bike back from the Gap they no longer work, I checked the bulbs, they are find, i checked the 20A fuse for the H/Light and its fine... not sure what else it could be. When I turn on the High Beam the blue light does not light up on the dash, although when i power on the bike at first that blue light test fires along with all the other lights....

Ideas boys?

Headlight switch not providing power to the headlight. Headlight relay, swap with one of the other three relays. Or sounds like something got messed up inside of the Hi/low switch.. T

Headlight relay is between the headlights. Should be the same as the ones on the left side. T

I just fixed this exact problem on my friends bike. Its the start switch. The headlight circuit goes through the start swith, so that when the starter switch is pressed, it breaks power to the headlights.

The blue/white striped wire had broken at the solder joint. I re-soldered it, and it was good as new.

LOL, We did the same thing on my buddies bike. Took it way apart! Alls well that ends well, right? So are you rolling with headlights now?
