R1150RT headlights/foglights stopped working

Hi All

I`ve just got my 51 reg RT back from my trusted bike mechanic where he`s sorted the brake calipers and stuff but now I`ve discovered the headlight and tail light aren`t working. He says he`s not done anything around that area.
The brake light works and the parking light works but the main running lights front and rear and the fog lights won`t come on.
I understand the lights are not controlled by a fuse but by the load relief relay, I`ve unplugged that and replaced it with the fuel pump relay but nothing.

Any ideas?

The headlight on these bikes are prone to ground issues. Try verifying that the grounds are sound.

Something I didn`t mention was that the high beam flash switch does work, is that earthed separately?

Also to add more information; the horn, indicators, heated grips and the starter work fine which makes me pretty sure it`s not the load relief relay.
