Did you check to see if you have a blown fuse?

If it is not the fuses, and I have the same problem, starts, runs fine, and headlight only. What other areas can I go to. Volusia 2003, 800vl, I love my bike and want to get back on it. Battery and fuses are fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Raw
