I guess you have checked the fuses ? if ok your problem lies with power line (wire) to the light switch. if you lock the bike and put the bike in park does the tail & side light work ? if so defo on the power to or from the light switch

If its the same as FZR600, the lights are fed via the start button switch, from battery through fuse red/yellow wire, into start button when button NOT pressed , back out on blue/black to feed high low light switch.

I guess you followed the diagram for the FZR600 water cooled ? with the FZ1000 being 1988 will follow the air cooled (early) wiring modal i.e. off/side/main switch not connected to the start switch, if the PO (side lights) work the blue wire is being fed via the red/yellow if not we have no power to the switch wholesale, but the red/yellow is powered from brown (battery 12v +) so if the brake lights work 12v is supplied by brown to red/yellow (unless the multi plug or soldered joints in the loom are knacked), use a multi meter to check 12v at red/yellow at the light on/off switch from there move to the l/h switch (dip switch) red/yellow and blue (pass switch) should have 12v to earth. if you have 12v to there check 12v at the yellow on the h/l bulb on hi beam then do do the same for green on lo beam. If you dont have voltage to the r/h switch (panic :lol: its time to cut the loom about)

FZR600 air cooled or water cooled ? they are well different ... got a water cooled in for repair at the moment, the whole system is totaly different but if you followed factory 1988 FZR1000 diagram you will see that 1 (power is supllied to 1 via the loom) is connected to 22 & 23 which in turn connects to 26 FZR600 water cooled does nothing of the sort

why mention FZR600 in the post if you were looking at the FZR1000 diagram ?

I mentioned FZR600

a, because its the only diagram i could find

b, so i thought they...just might be similar

who said i was looking at a FZR1000 diagram?

no one .... I have an FZR1000 wiring diagram and an FZR600 WC wiring diagram and they bear very few similarities to each other. I was trying to work out whether you were looking at FZR600 WC or an FZR600 AC diagram (the AC , from memory, is closer to the FZR1000 1988 wiring) it's odd tho that the red/yellow is fed from the brown via a soldered joint in the loom, there is a good chance this connection has gone 'dry'
