2008 (red one)

While starting this afternoon, the headlights came on then *POOF* were gone.
Bike runs OK.

Troubleshooting:
Found NO power to headlight fuses.
NO power to handlebar headlight switch pack.
NO power to headlight socket.
(Fuses are good.)
So, power is NOT getting to the fuse box. :cry:

Is there something I am not seeing?
Is there a headlight relay?
Is there a fusible link?
Is there some other fuse pack?
(Right next to the fuse box, there is a relay-looking thing. What is it?)

Any help is appreciated! It is such a nice day for a ride too :(

If anyone has a brainstorm, I would appreciate a call, as I won't be able to get to the forum until Monday morning.
It must be something simple, the bike worked fine Thursday, all of a sudden Saturday *POOF*

Thanks a ton!

Check the starter button. The interlock in them that shuts off the lights while starting sometimes fails.

:cheers: and the answer is.... after tearing down most of the tupperware because I thought that it was a relay problem...

The little gizmo next to the fuse box. Apparently, it was not plugged in all the way.
When I took it out, with key "on", the lights were ON.
But the bike wouldn't start with it removed.
Apparently, not having a wiring diagram, it must be a relay.

This was another one of those learning experiences :)
