Default speedo, turn signals, and riding lights out

This morning, shortly after I started my bike, I noticed my odometer wasn't working. As I started riding, I realized my speedo wasn't working, nor were my turn signals working, and neither were my Kuryakyn Silver Bullet riding lights. But the headlight worked, and the bike got me to work with no problem.

My Silver Bullets are hardwired to be on when the bike is on. They're connected to a black wire with an orange stripe, if I remember correctly.

I'm guessing it's probably a fuse. What do you all think?

Do your brake lights work?....and how about the horn?

Don't know of any black / orange wire. Maybe orange / white?? If your brake lights are not working, horn, turn signals....check the "accessories" fuse (orange/white wire runs from here). Better yet...swap it with another fuse as sometimes it is hard to tell if a fuse is good or not.

The headlight is on the "lights" fuse...which normally your running lights are too....but it sounds like you wired them in differently now.

Maybe it was orange/white. I remember it had a stripe. I'll have to check the horn and brake light later. Thanks.
