F4I Headlight Issue

My wife's headlights went out the other day on the 2001 F4I. Pulled the bulbs and found 1 to be bad. Replaced both when I got the chance and now I can't get them to come back on. Inspected all wiring and fuses with no success. If anyone has suggestions or ideas, I'd appreciate the help.

Get a multimeter (voltmeter), even a cheap wal-mart one will do and start poking around.

Test the socket first. Pull out the bulb, turn the lights on, and stick the multimeter probes in the socket prongs. The multimeter should be set to ~10-20 VDC. You should get 12volts.
My guess is that if the bulbs are good, you will get 0 volts across the sockets. So trace to the next place where the wires connect and test the connection for voltage with the multimeter again. Do this until you find a place where there is voltage and report back to us.

Also test for ground continuity. Find the negative/ground prong of the socket, insert/touch one of the probes in it. Place the other probe somewhere on the frame or battery negative terminal. Select continuity on the multimeter. Sometimes its marked with a diode symbol cs diode general

The negative wire of the socket should always be grounded.

im having the same problem, but i cant find the wires that have positive. i can only get the lo beam to come on, but its not the right wire thats supposed to be used as shown in the diagram. i would say it may be the relay like drewston said. drewston whats up on that upper fairing lol
