Thanks Dave!

I value your sage advice. You have more GL1100 knowledge in your pinky finger then I'll ever have. What's confusing me thou, is if you look at the wiring diagram I've attached, it shows the black/grey wire connected to fuse #2 as feeding the lights I'm having trouble with AS WELL AS the control unit and both spark units. so if my fuse is bad, shouldn't that take out the spark/control units as well? I'll test this theory after dinner tonight by pulling/testing #2 and seeing if she'll start. If the fuse is good AND she does not run with it removed, then the fault must be somewhere on the left side of the diagram.

Maybe my diagram is wrong??
