Default headlights dont work anymore

Hello, when i got off of work today and started the bike i realized that both of my headlights dont work and i just replaced the bulbs. the bike is a 2001 cbrf4i. Maybe the fuse blew? how do i access the fuses?

Take the front seat off. There is a labelled fuse box under it. Pull up on back corners of seat and you will see one screw on each side that hold seat on.

hum.. that's weird. I just turned the bike off and on and now the lights work again... I didnt even have to take a look at the fuses. That's odd. I wonder why that happened..?

Do you work in a paint shop or a place with lots of fumes?

lol no i work at a resturant, all i smell is pancakes and fumes. I think the started switch just got stuck, cutting out the power to the headlights. Thats the only explination i can think of. im just going to wd-40 that guy up, and also my turn signals are a little stuck, can i Wd-40 in between the switches? I like wd-40 lol

no WD-40! WD-40 is flammable and switches are electrial. Do the math

Get some electronic contact cleaner. Radio Shack, Pepboys, Autozone and Napa all carry it. Prolly others (possibly CVS, Rite Aid and Eckerds)

Could be that a wire connection got pulled a bit loose when you accessed the light bulbs.
