No high and low headlight neither high bean indicator

On the Saturday, on the return of the ride, the high and low headlight and the high bean indicator went out. Check the fuse today and it is fused. I replace it with the spare one and I still do not have lights. I do not think the light bulbs are burned but I'll check. I'm worried that the fuse has burned and with the new one it does not turn on. It can be an indicator of a more serious problem. The electrical system is as it left the factory without modifications or additions. Is a 2016 model
Some suggestions please.
Is dry season in Panama and have plans for the Holy Week.

I do not have tail light, but the brake light does work when it is activated.

Brake light & turn signals are probably on main circuit. Headlights & High indicator & probably all dash lights, tail light & license light are probably on Head light Fuse.

Probably blew the Head light fuse again the instant you turned the key.

Probably chaffed a wire. First Check the wires between the RH fuel tank seam & the coolant recovery tank Bracket! When that bracket gets bent, it traps the wires against the sharp fuel tank seam.

Headlight fuse, most likely. If so, install a 15-amp fuse, replacing the blown 10-amp, if a Generation 1 (2007 model or earlier). Ain't sure what the Generation 2 headlight fuse rating might be.

I think a Generation 1 has a main fuse, a headlight fuse, and a fan fuse . . . but I'm not sure!

I commend to you, wiring diagrams on the Internet and in service manuals. Complemented by a multi-meter, effective for diagnosis and repair.

I checked where PDWESTMAN told me that some cable could be bit under the tank and that it usually bites on the right side over the coolant reservoir. Check and there was nothing bitten or burned. Disarm the lamp low and when I remove the dust cover, the electric plug of the bike to the bulb fell without touching it. I took out the bulb and the socket where it connects and found the reheat inside the socket.The bulb also had a reheat mark. Buy bulb and socket and everything was ok. I think that the bad contact caused the overheating and burned the fuse and both the second time. The socket is the same one used by CRV Honda cars. Everything is working 100%. Could this have been the cause?
The ligths fuse 15A
The main fuse 20A
