Re: Headlight Issues
I am assuming the bike starts. the headlight only comes on once the engine is running. Cuts down on amps draw that way. The reserve lighting is just an auxillary connection for driving lights, etc. it's an extra connection.
Wires do tend to get pinched in that headlight bucket and the VN700/750 also likes clean connections. First see if you are getting power to the socket as suggested and if not, start tracing back.
the only other thing I know of is not so good.. You might want to test your R/R and stator to make sure you do have a good electrical system. Don't panic though, many times it turns out to be a dirty connection somewhere. Clean and pack with dielectric grease
