headlight doesnt work!

How's it going? I have an 05 600rr..i dropped it a while back, right before the winter and my headlights stopped working..i thought it might have been the upper wiring harness that split or something but i got a new one and the headlight still doesn't work..all my fuses are fine, the actual lights are fine..anyone have any ideas on what else it could be? any help would be appreciated!

underneath the left side ram air cover there is 2 plugs
make sure their connection is tight and secure

are you talking about the 2 connections that the upper wiring harness connects to?

I would first check voltage at the headlight harness up front and go from there. Maybe your bulbs need changing...

you might check the relay as well it is between your headlights... i believe you have to take the front fairing off to get to it. sadly. keep us posted.
