Check for wiring loom rubbing through and shorting to earth. Near headstock or behind radiator.
Check for damage on front of engine where wires exit, infact full legth of wire for stone damage.
Remove tank, find the connector at the end of that wire. Disconnect it and check between the yellow wire and frame for voltage when you fire up the bike. If you havent got a tester just use a 12v bulb - it should get really bright then blow. If volts are there its a wiring loom problem or switch or regulator problem. If no volts then the problem between the connector and generator or the generator itself.
Sometimes regulators go wrong and short to earth - disconnect the regulator (silver box on LHS of frame near headstock). Start bike up. Any lights that are turned on will get really bright then blow - better to use a meter with the lights turned off.
Keep us posted - tell us what you find. More info can be had if you do a bit more diagnosis

Trace all leads downstream of the light switch, you'll find your answer.

Those little bulbs fit into tiny clips that can touch each other if the bulb is removed or if you damage the connector in an off. The tiny clips just sit there in the rubber boot, its easy for them to move about.
Pleased you got sorted in the end.
