Electrical problems

While riding my vulcan a few days ago the tachometer, headlight, running rear light and horn all quit working. The turn signals will still work and the bike will still start and run..... What would cause all of these to stop working at the same time? or is it just a coincidence that they all quit at the same time?

I have a problem ... When turning handlebars right, my Hi-Beam Headlight goes out... I switch to Low-Beam immediately. I believe both our problems may be in the wiring harness near the handlebars.

Blair, do the lights on the dash work? I had a similar problem, turned out to be a loose solder point in the ignition

Check your solder points in the location mentioned, and also check all of your connections, and make sure there is no corrosion in them. I had a bit of a problem like that on my gator and come to find out there was some corrosion in the connector plug. The only thing I lost in my ordeal was the headlights, but it is a good idea to check for that problem. There is a spray can that eliminates the corrosion at your local auto parts store.

The turn signal dash lights work when on but no neutral switch or tac lights or any of that. I will try and check into that thanks
