Check your battery leads as well. At the battery and at the bike. I had a loose connection one day & my bike acted very similar. It's possible to be a break in a wire as well. Check by the neck of the bike. I've heard of problems with over extended wires there.

Could also be the ignition switch, but it's easy to check continuity of the wiring to see if it's a broken wire. Either problem can cause the situation you describe.

I'd track down what fuse it should be and swap it out anyway. Small chance that the fuse is shot even though it looks good. (Has happened before and little effort involved) I'd check that all battery cables are good and tight too. A lot of wiring runs through the headlight bucket and things can get chafed in there. I'd pull it and inspect all the wires. A red wire with a blue stripe is the positive for the tachometer and meter lights FYI.
