I installed a 7" tribar headlight and two front turnsignals last night.  All works fine except ampmeter does not budge! always pegged to left. not a bit of movement.  I need ideas as to what i have done.  everything seems fine, bike starts and runs with lights etc..

But at  some point you must have shorted something to get the meter to total discharge position. I'd check behind the head light and make sure there are no wires under stress or frayed.
