Question having a lil trouble tonight

good mornin i hate to bother y'all but i was wondering if you might be able to help me out with some tech. info???? i have a 99 monster 750 i replaced the head lamp tonight with two small rectangular halogen aftermarket lamps. The lamps do their job and everything appears to be normal and s.o.p. until i went to fire her up and got nothing. even tried to push start her but to no avail....what did i do wrong or what am i missing?

As soon as you cranked nothing?

If you have enough power for the lights to be on, you should be able to push start it.

Give us an update after you charge. Hopefully a main fuse didn't blow. Where did you get the power for the headlight/auxs?

The lights will turn on with as little as 4 volts, the engine will not start once the battery drops below 9 volts, put a DMM to the battery and read the voltage, should be above 12, turn the key and read it again, it should still be above 12. Now press start button and watch where it goes on the DMM.
