  • No power to the headlights?

    was putting my bike back together with the new bars new windshield and fender mount from my little accident a while back. I have power to my signals, tail lights, and marker lights, but no power to the head and passing lights. Figured it was a fuse but it does not appear to be that, I swapped them out with known good ones and same result. I pulled all of the connectors apart and reseated them. Not sure what is going on, so figured I would ask here ..

    Does the headlight come on with the key on yours? My '08 doesn't come on until the engine is running.

    If it comes on automatically with key then a test light might might be where to start. I presume you've checked both hi and low beams?

    If it doesn't until the bike starts then start with relays and work from there.

    I know you know this already but just thinking out loud.

      Yeah, they come on with the key. There is no power coming to the headlight plug. Better look at the switch since I just figured out the horn is not working either.

        I'd check for a ground connection on the headlight plug too. Do you have the wiring diagram? There are only so many connections in the headlight and horn circuit. If you know where the connections should be you can look for open circuits with a multimeter.

          I found a loose screw in the switch on the ground wire, but signals were working, I broke the green wire off the headlight switch so I'll need to solder that back on.

          I had the wiring diagram bookmarked but the link is dead, You got one?

              Ya, was going to say it is probably in your switch, but looks like you got it under control.

                Turns out it was in my switch. Gotta find a new one now. Ugh!
