Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883
A blown headlight will not stop the tail light from working.
If they both stopped together it will be a fuse\switch or wire short issue

Check the rear bulbs.If they are working (brakes+lights) check the wires.For the turn signals, override the flasher relay.If they are coming on then you need to replace the relay.If not then check the left hand side clip on switch.

Sounds like a Relay malfunction. Remove your left side cover, remove the fuse box cover, loosen the 4 left saddlebag bolts. There are 2 8mm at the bottom and 2 8mm in the upper saddlebag. Grab the saddle bag and pull it out far enough to remove the Relay Cover next to the Fuse box. On the back side of the cover you will see the descriptions of all the relays. One will identify operating the items related to your problem. Switch the relay with the Air Compressor Relay because you don't use the Compressor as a necessity to operate your system. Replace the Relay that can be purchased from your Honda Dealer or you can cheat by purchasing a Pilot Fog light Relay from Auto Zone that is a 30 amp that is identical except you will have to break off the tabs and file down the residue to fit behind the cover. The Honda 20 amp Relay will cost $30 and the Auto Zone will cost $8. You can test the Relay by connecting 12 volts to the 2 side terminals and check the continuity on the other terminals with an OHM meter. If you get nothing it's bad.
