Headlight question

I have a 03 Honda 919 about 4000 miles. I came out from work last night and my headlight didnt work. Fuses are good and blub is good. No high or low beam and all other functions of the bike work. Has anybody ever had this problem or can give any suggestions.

Check the R/H handlebar switch, it supplies power to the headlights.
Often on Hondas the wire inside becomes corroded and come unsoldered for the switch assy..

The right hand switch or the left hand with the hi/lo setting. I considered that it might be the swith but with so little miles I just havent checked it yet.

The starter switch. It turns the headlight off while starting and back on when you let off the switch. It could be something else but that type switch has always been a problem.

RH switch. It's the power supply for the headlights.

That's what happened to mine, and it's common on Hondas with the same switch. Give me a few mins, and I'll get you a link on what to do (other than soldering the connection back together, or buying a new switch assembly).

But here's what I did...

I used a Tap In Squeeze connector (parallel connector), since the blue/white and black/red wires are right next to each other. I did the connection on the side of the brown plug towards the switch.
