Have had the same problem, same bike. Dealer installed the additional running lights so they come on with the low beam headlight. Go off when the high beam is turned on. Mandatory for my state inspection procedure.
Possible solution to problem: open the headlight housing, should be a solid green wire going to the headlight bulb. Dealer spliced wire for running lights into this green wire.
Splice was just a crimp on splice. Vibration on a bike wipes out this type of splice quickly.
Got rid of the crimp on connector and did things the old fashioned way, used solder for the connection. Vibration does not bother the soldered connection.
Took care of the problem

I have the extra lights on either side of the head light they won't come on why

Who wired them and what way are they connected? Are they linked in to the headlights or are they separately switched? Generally if the lights are linked to the headlight but don't come on with the lamp then it's likely the connections are dodgy. Check and if necessary, re site the earth connection to your bike frame and the positive supply connections. For piece of mind you can get a switched auxiliary lighting wiring loom from an auction site and use that for your auxiliary lights.

My 2002 1100 v star classic does not run on the front cylinder, has spark, has compression, front cylinder stays cold. Back cylinder runs on spark, fuel, compression, no problem. Give any throttle and bike...

How good did you clean the carbs? The idle jets usually have small holes along the side, and if they are blocked with dirt or bad fuel, it won't idle. Make sure ALL of the passages are clear, and all jets are clear, through the center and holes in the sides of the pilot jets.

How do you replace headlight? skipper

I just replaced mine about 30 min. ago. There are two Phillip head screws at about 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock on the main body of the head light. Do not mess with the two screws on the ring on front of the headlight. Now the ring and the glass part will separate from body of the light. Unplug the amphenol plug and lay the light face down on a towel on your work bench. Remove the black plastic cover and then release the locking spring. The halogen bulb will lift out. I bought a replacement bulb at O Riley's for less than ten dollars. Now reverse the procedure.

Blowing turn signal fuse

Every time you turn bike on front lamps are cuasing fuse failure. you have a running light pwr pinched. diconnect battery ground and secure lead so it cant get back to post. Use an ohm meter check lights pwr leads to ground looking for meter to see if continuity to chassis ground exsists. ohm's found in milla or killa values should not be mistaken for short to ground more like the resistance through light fillament. best checked with all bulbs to circuit removed. Continuity through test leads should be subtracted from test value good connection .1ohm no connection = OFL or open.
