To be honest, I have noticed a couple of times on startup that I had a weak highbeam instrument light on, on the instrument display, even though I was in lowbeam mode. Switching the beam switch back and forth once or twice resulted in the dim light going away, and then things functioned normally. This may or may not have the slightest thing to do with having no lights this morning. All other startup functions, indicators, and lights function normally. Your thoughts appreciated.
    Hello Bill, did you find your defect?
    If not you can check your ground connector inside the head light. For some reason the ground wire burns out and leaves your lights dead. Probably the loose connector contact and the high amps (ground for fog,high and low beam) are the problem. The picture shows my head light (upside down). My 2004 reacted just like yours.
    By the way, all the lights get ground only thru the brown cable from connector X9010 (ground=brown, fog=greyblack, high beam=white/yellow, low beam=white) under the upper front trim panel (disconnected cable in picture).
    For more electric trouble shooting the diagrams from Mac-Pac are a helpful tool http://www.mac-pac.org/tech/electrical-diagrams/

    I believe the R1100 didn't have the light circuits fused. On the R1150 every light (low, high, fog) has it's own fuse.
    Bill, did you have a chance to check your bike?

    Sorry, no fuses on headlights before 04, after yes according to Doug's notes.

    The model difference seems to be correct.
    However the burnt ground cable at the head light happened on my 2004 RT WITH fuses.
