Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
Check the switch, and the head light connector. This is the most likely cause of your problem.

Energy must pass through your switch (hi/low or momentary), then to your headlight, and finally to ground. An interruption anywhere will cause the light to go out. Since both your hi and low beams are not working, I suspect a bad ground connection somewhere. Probably in your switch, but if it is easier to check the headlight socket I would check that too. Use a multi-meter, see if you have power to the switch. If you do, ground the negative lead coming to the switch and see if your headlight comes on. If it does, you know you have a bad ground.

It sounds like you have a poor ground connection. You'll have to disassemble and check the wiring harness for broken wires, start up near the ignition switch or around anything that is no longer stock on the bike (like aftermarket turn signals, fuel nanny, power commander, etc.)

Yes - and there is a fuse for just those items. The other possible cause is a bad starter button. When you push the start button, it does two things: activates the electric starter - and cuts power to the headlight until the button is released. So, if it isn't the fuse, it's probably the start button.

Low beam switch may be bad. use a meter to check for power to lowbeam side of lamp. cleaning with electrical contact spray may help.
