Jumping the wires to the starter switch made no difference. After rechecking fuses and light bulbs, I engaged in some scientific 'wire-jiggling'. Moving the starter-switch wires that go over the top of the radiator to the black connector behind the radiator I was able to get the lights to come on.
It appears I have a problem with the wires from the switch down to the connector, with the connector itself, or with both. I already checked, cleaned and reconnected the black connector behind the radiator, but I must have missed something. Next step is to pull the right side fairing cover and carefully check that connector again, and the wires as well.
And while I'm at it, a headlight relay too. Is Eastern Beaver the only one with a relay for the Wee?
