    I'd bet on a bad ground...… someplace. Maybe around where your fogs fit in the cowling. You can't have too many grounds, so ad them if you can't find a ground. Remove & clean all grounds you can locate, a little dielectric grease won't hurt.
    Could be a pinched or loose hot wire.
    Electrical problems will make you crazy if you let them. Shops charge "by the hour" to hunt for them.
    Keep us posted … good luck

    I believe that it's fixed.
    I don't think the relay plug was plugged it to the wiring harness all the way, if it was clipped in, it would of not fell off.
    They is very little room to be able to push the plugs together

    I do not have the the Honda lights, I have the Tridium lights from Big Bike Parts. Their crimp-type connection that connects the wire to the light leaves a lot of room for failure after a short period of time, it appears. I ended up cutting their connectors off and soldering everything together and then sealing it up with shrink tubing. As Olegoat noted, that is vulnerable area for impacts, moisture, dirt, dust, etc. All bad news for electrical connections.

    I have the remote saddlebag lid kit that I have yet to install. I will be soldering those connections as well.

    The wiring and connectors with that package leave a lot to be desired.
