Headlight dead after lifting tank

I lifted the tank to change out the spark plugs and now my headlight is dead. I know that the starter switch is a common solution to this problem, but I'm almost certain that's not it because the light was working before I changed plugs with no problems.

The highbeam light indicator stays on regardless of whether I switch from high to low beam. I tore into the headlight and the bulb is good, as is the connector. I checked connections under the tank and all seem fine; fuses are good too. Is there perhaps something else under the tank that I could have undone?

Power is also getting to the H4 connector.

If the high beam indicator still works, it's either the bulb is burnt or the connection in the starter switch.

Went with the easiest fix first and changed the bulb. The one taken out must have had a micro fracture in it because it definitely looked good. The bulb change cleared the issue. Thanks.
