so just so I understand you correctly the blue wire supplies power to the dimmer switch to power the headlight so if there's power in the blue wire the problem is in the switch correct? i did read in the fuse panel the circuit that one fuse feeds which is the headlight & is live there so I must move along to that blue wire in that connector & see if there's power there. getting down to the nitty gritty & should be able to figure this out soon. the funny thing is I never checked to see if the headlight sealed beam actually works, but if there's no power at the red wires it's silly to do so I guess....

Did you ever open up the handlebar control switch?

I found a n.o.s. switch for cheap & just ordered it. this might take care of 2 problems because the auto turn signal cancelling don't work & that solenoid underneath the switch could be bad. for all I know they might work now as I already replaced the module in front of the battery box which controls this feature but have not rode the bike as of yet. when the switch comes in I will remove the tank for cleaning & do this at the same time & eliminate all problems at this point.
