14 wrf450 headlight not working

Electrickery is not my strong suit. It does my head in.
14 450. Tried couple new bulbs. Nada. Put the multimeter on it. Nada power. The high beam light is on no matter where switch is. Swapped the 2 x relays around .
Anyone had a similar issue & solved it?
TIA.

No. Even if it was at least hi or lo would be on as its a constant Circuit.

I have had two issues with my WR headlight one was the loom was rubbing on the regulator as it was cabled tied to it on the frame near the steering stock so the constant turning back and forth had worn through the side the loom and shorted out the headlight circuit. The other was the regulator (not long after ??)
it was around $80-$100 from memory.
My Guess you have a pinched loom somewhere and it is shorting out inside or grounding the circuit.
Check you haven't crushed a wire around the bark busters / switch blocks or around the tank area is common also.

Your owners manual has the wiring diagram and the ADR additional loom diagram loose inside it. Betting that is the circuit that is your culprit.
