Headlight failure

I had my bike apart for track day, and always remove the headlight because the parking lamp is a pain in the ass to unplug. I have two HIDs installed.

when i put the headlight back together, the low beam wouldn't work. I swapped out parts of both HID's and all the components worked on the high beam side. I checked the plug with a multimeter and the low side registered a small voltage, but the high side 12+.

i did a hard reset by disconnecting the batter for a day. still didn't work. the only other thing i can think of is using a regular halogen bulb just to get the canbus to work properly, or is it not related?

Low Beam Headlight Failure 2007 K1200R Sport

I have a similar problem. Everything on my bike is stock. While prepping the bike for the start of my season in upstate NY the low beam headlight was not working. The high beam works fine. The low beam bulb appeared to be good. Replaced the bulb anyway, and still nothing. Tested the circuit and only got a momentary voltage when the key was turned on. Checked the wiring and nothing obvious was damaged. Any suggestions on what to do next? Thanks.
Just read the similar threads and I now see the errors of my way. Just confirms I am slowly losing it.
