The circuit breakers on your bike are under the seat- if you have an ohm-meter handy, pull them out one at a time and check them for continuity. If they all check good (meaning reading as a short across the terminals) the problem is elsewhere, and will need to be traced out. If you find a bad breaker that will not reset on it's own, replace it and try your lights again. If they come on momentarily then go out again- or they don't turn on, and you find a tripped breaker again, the problem is almost for sure a hot wire touching the frame, and will turn into a weekend project. Please let me know if this helps!

Harley puts these things in so many places on some many different years and models of bikes that it's very difficult to keep up with. Usually on Road Kings. the main circuit breaker is under the seat or the right side cover. But, I can't swear to it.

Check the wires on the rear brake light switch. Follow the metal tube brake line coming out of the rear master cylinder going towards the rear wheel. You'll come to a pressure switch. This is the rear brake light switch. Check to see if the wires are still plugged onto the switch. One set of wires should be "hot" whenever the switch is on. The front brake light switch is simply wired in parallel with this switch.
