Angry Headlights just don't want to turn back on!!

So it's not the starter. I opened it up and everything was attached where it should be. I read a few threads recommending to check this first.

It's not any of the fuses. I removed them all and checked them out.

What do I do now? I can't ride at night!!

Thanks fellas.

so everything runs fine and just no headlights? check the connection of the wire in the starter switch housing. sometimes it can come unsoldered.

Yeah I have checked the soldering and everything looks fine.

No HID's.

I don't have a multimeter. If I were to get one, what would you suggest I test with it?

The problem is this. When I turn the key to ON, the blue highbeam light turns on and then shuts off. The third eye stays on but the other lights dont work. This has happened before and the lights will turn on and stay on. Now they dont come back on at all.

My lights were cutting out on me a few months ago. The problem ended up not being wiring.... turned out the spring in my starter switch was gummed up and was killing the lights but not the engine. I know you said not the wires but check the spring on the switch and clean it. The big thing is the switch comes all the way back out.

Check your headlight relay. easier said than done, i know, but that's an important part to check.
