A couple questions:

When this happens, and your lights have gone out,

- Do your horns work?
- If you turn on a turn signal, does it flash the turn signal indicator on the dash?
- If you have an air pump, does it operate?

Here's what I'm guessing. The only thing I can find that is common between all the components you mention is the ground "S168" through connector "C55". This connector connects ground for the following components:

- Air pump
- Front turn signal/position lights
- Headlight position lights
- Headlights
- Fairing market lights
- Dashboard turn signal indicator lights
- Tachometer
- Dashboard illumination lights
- Speedometer illumination lights
- Dashboard LCD unit
- Dashboard high beam indicator

If all of those things don't work, AND the horn DOES work, then I would suspect the ground connector (green wire) that leads from those items. The closest splice to the connector is the left front turn signal/position light.

In general, I suspect you have a ground problem, a loose ground somewhere.
