I HAVE NO HEADLIGHTS OR BRAKE/TAIL LIGHTS.
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM COULD BE, OR HOW TO TEST POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS?
THANKS.

You need to check the stator, the yellow wires should power the lights.

Take off the seat/tank, look for wires rubbed and melted together where the harness comes through the steering support and under the seat/tank.

You should first figure out if you have voltage or not.

Take a simple test light and check for voltage at any yellow wire near a light, with the motor running of course.

Post back with results after you check and I'll tell you what your next step should be.

Everyone here has good answers. If the bulbs are all blown then it would be the voltage regulator. If the just aren't lighting up, then check for voltage off the stator. If there is voltage across the 2 yellow wires while the engine is running, then I'd look for a short in the electrical wiring somewhere. A short will draw all the current away from the bulbs.
