Test or replace bulb. If that doesn't fix ya, check for voltage at the headlight plug and light switch.

Just bought a 2003 yamaha v star but fog lights dont work, is there a certain switch for them?

This might be caused by one of two issues that come to mind off the top. I would check fuses to see if one might be blown, and two is I ride with my high beams on almost all the time. In cars, the fog lights are often on a circuit as such to only receive power on low beam lights and not work with lights on highbeams or when headlights aren't on.

How do I adjust the headlight on a yamaha royal star motorcycle

It it's a Venture, there's a knob on the left side, in front of the fork pivot, turn clockwise to lower the beam, counterclockwise to raise it.

If it's just a Royal Star, the adjustments may be made through holes on both sides, cut low in the headlight rim.

I have a royalstar tour classic 1997, The headlight does not switch to high beam and the high beam indicator is always on. i changed the bulb but it still does the same.

There is a non-serviceable cam in the low/high beam switch that changes contacts on the switch, sounds like it's broken. Bite the bullet, and have the switch replaced.

No power to headlight or driving lights

does high beam work? if it does then you are getting power and the low beam filament is burnt out. if the high beam doesnt work either, then check for voltage in the light socket in high beam mode, if no voltage then you must check the wiring harness for broken, bent, corroded, or pushed back pins.

Low beam dosent work. bulb is good highbeam works cant find fuse for lights. its not underhood

It has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.
Most like the low beam filiment is bad but the high beam filiment is still good, try replacing bulb. If replacing bulb does not fix problem then you probably have voltage problems and should check the voltage reading and the plug.
isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illunimates with the headlight switch on.
check the wires, and check the fuse for your lowbeams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work.

The fuse box is located in the engine compartment,on the driver's side. Has thumb-screw retained cover.
Thanks for contacting
