yeah, so i checked the bulbs itself(ok), checked the fuses(ok), took the seat, upper and lower fairings and looked for anything wrong/disconnected, but everything looked ok(thats where im not 100% sure though, since the lights still wont turn on, so the problem is somewhere..) and.... as far as the relay goes, i have no idea how to check it to see if its good or bad, but it looks good and not burned out.. lol

idk... im just lost now :(

Actually, we are talking about the same Michael with an f4i. I think I told him to ask you to come to the central meet. Get with him and we'll figure out some way to help you. In the mean time, look at your relay and see if there is a diagram on the side of it. Should help you identify the pins for the coil. Usually 85 - 86 on most relays. Ground one pin and power to the other, the relay should click. Also, check for continuity from the other two pins while it is "energized". If there is continuity than it is good. If you don't know wth I'm talking about, than I'll bring a meter with me.
