Both high and low beam?
Check the right hand handlebar switch.
The Hondas are notorious for having the power feed for the headlights come unsoldered.

The headlight power travels through 3 different plugs. Usually its the biggest wire. Trace from the bulb back looking for discoloration and loose wires on the back of the plugs. Good luck man

Took the switch apart. Everything looked together.

I used to have about a 1/4" of play on my throttle, not anymore.

What does your schedule look like on Saturday Patrick?
