Somewhere I screwed up during the processes of installing the 868 regulator and installing the automatic turn signal cancelling, I screwed up my headlights. The city lights work fine, but the high and low beams won't light up. The bulbs are good as is the fuse. Taillights and signals work. The bike runs better than it ever did. I now have the tank and Tupperware off , wiring diagram out and trying to trace down the problem. I have rechecked all the wires and connectors I fooled with . I can't find anything wrong. The only thing that comes to mind now is some relay? Can someone have a trouble-shooting path I might try. I have multiple VOMs, probes, etc, but just not the electrical savy to figure it out on my own.
The bike is a 2008 and the headlights are stock.
It would be helpful if you posted what trigger method you chose, you mention a Red/ Blue wire, it is actually a Blue with Red Tracer
which is the brake trigger wire which I no longer recommend unless you have something like the Denali lights wired to come on when keying on. The wire that gets cut is the Black pin #2 headlight relay wire, about 1 inch from the socket, the part that goes to the harness gets electrical tape. That black wire, the 1 inch length, is now recommended to solder to pin #3 of the headlight
relay, that wire is gray
Here is my 2015, although the wire colours are identical for the 2007, note I have the headlight relay black wire attached to a purple which is soldered to the brake wire , note the yellow tape, which is the other end of the headlight relay parasitic drain wire going into the harness, Note the gray wire on the lower right of that socket.
You can read my revised trigger post which is post #2 o

Blue with Red Tracer / Colour code 101
when viewing any multi coloured wire, the wider band is the main colour the tracer is the the narrow band. The brake wire in this photo is the connector on the right side of the bike near the gas tank rubber mount , as shown in the photo, in the background is the overflow line from the glycol reservoir.I have a small screwdriver inserted behind the Blue / Red wire ***the first colour is always the main and the second is the tracer, on drawings you will see BL/R ( BL=blue) if you see B/R that is black with red tracer
my trigger wire located front right in the harness from the front brake. BL/R
So explain/ list, what you cut and what you soldered.
