Remove the headlight and inspect the wire connector, they have a history of melting.

Seems like the problem is farther upstream than the connector. A bad connector would not affect the aux lamps.

Check the connector for the left hand control switches, unplug it and make sure all the pins are in correct position and not pushed back into the connector, check the blue wire.

Check the key switch ignition relay.

A test light may help you trace a circuit, but it is no help in determining voltage.

The best way to test a circuit is when it is under a load, using a voltmeter.

Oh yes. The aux. lamps get power from the headlight low beam wire. That's why they go off when the high beam is switched on.
Upstream I would check for pinched wires under the clutch perch, especially if custom grips are installed.
