Headlight Quit Working

Was riding the other day and noticed my headlight quit working, everything else works do you think it's just a fuse ?

Check the bulb, they are known to burn out after a while.

Unlikely both headlights burned out at once (unless one was already burned out and you didn't notice it). Check the fuse.

Headlight relay could also be giving problems. Do the high beams work?

Checker youir starter button give it a little push out..if it doesn't return all the way out after start the headlight stays off..that's how mine works....but hten as said above fuses, relays..or loose wiring
