Bought an 82 wing Friday and drove it home, no problems. My daughter and son-in-law took it out for a spin this evening and no headlight and no turn signals at all. I just looked at it and since it is dark thirty I thought I would ask all the brains here if there is a wire that can come loose that controls them. Rear lights work fine. I don't think all the bulbs would go at once. This has the Vetter fairing on the front. This is a somewhat project bike but a rider in the meantime. Any ideas?

There should be a multiple connector on the left inside of the fairing.
Since all the lights in the fairing are affected, it is most likely a bad ground.
I don't remember how close vetter followed the honda wire color code.
Honda's color GREEN is almost always ground.
I suspect there is still a large green ground eyelet inside the headlamp assy.
If it's like most, you push a release at the bottom of the headlamp ring and turn counterclockwise to remove.

You might also want to pull the fairing and check the points where the Vetter harness was 'hacked' into the main harness, usually inside the area that used to be the headlight.

I got the problem fixed. The 9 pin connector from bike to fairing was barely loosened. It looked like it was plugged in but after I pulled it apart and checked voltage and found voltage, I plugged it back in and everything works well. Thank you all for your help. I ALWAYS can count on someone knowing just what to do with any problems with my bikes. THANK YOU ALL again.
