check your connections and switch for shorts.

and no matter what the bulb looks like, it still may be fried...try a new bulb.

no...see what kind of bulb it is, and get it from an autoparts store or walmart.

the 450's use an h4 bulb, not sure about yours.

Check your wires aren't crushed between the steering stops, that's what happened to mine.
