On my 1984 gl1200 I just replaced the headlight bulb because the high beam wasnt working. Well the new bulb didnt solve the problem still no high beam?

There might be a relay for the hi and the low beams you can swap them and see if that swaps filaments not working, if so you know you need a new relay.

Have you cleaned your hi/low switch with electrical contact cleaner?

Does the high beam indicator light come on? That would tell you if there is power to the light or not.

Since the indicator does work that indicates the switch is sending power to the circuit. Check for power at the blue wire in the headlight plug, either a broken wire or the new bulb is bad.
