Ok,,, so all i did was pull out one H4 bulb, put another in, and now cruise control doesnt work, and just noticed my horn doesnt work either.... will i need a new cruise control part? What do we think?

I checked the wiring diagram and the horn, headlight and cruise control are all powered by the same yellow wire. Unfortunately, no fuses shown on the diagram, but I’ll bet one is blown and causing your issue. Check them under the left side cover.

When you are an old fart . . . like me . . . and you have been working on old bikes for a l-o-n-g time you think of fuses. (Although on some of the newer bikes you think of canbus.) :|

Always go for the obvious first, although don't be suckered into excluding other things. I have a 35' sailing boat, and one year had the single lever (throttle and forward/reverse combined) replaced. First trip out, just to "try" it out, all fine, went about 300 yards, then decided to engage astern. Nothing but engine revs... Never mind, we can get back onto the mooring in ahead only. Engage ahead, only engine revs... I assumed that there was a problem with the new control as first point, but when I went below to look, the propeller shaft had dropped out of the engine coupling. Entire coincidence.
