We will find out when the OP posts up and tells us what they found.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Just found the K1200S wiring diagram in the resources section.

Assuming the K1300 is similar, all lighting & other ancilliaries wire direct to & are controlled by the ZFE unit.
Switches also connect direct to this unit, so there is no direct control from any switch to any light / horn etc.

So either the wire to the ZFE is disconnected or the ZFE is broke.

The ZFE seems to be permanently connected accross the battery to keep it powered up, so it might be worth disconnecting the battery for a minute then re-connecting & see if the function is restored.
It's not the same and the canbus is also adjusted at deferent current values.
Embrace the wind.

Thanks for all the feedback. :D
Somehow after moving switch gear and wiring loom about I now have power. Been out on 200 mile ride all OK, thinking it could have been a bad earth?

Good news but keep an eye on it cos it could be the switchgear on the way out and I would still mention it to the dealer!

My dip head light blew again so instead of just putting in a new one I had a good look at the two connectors that slide and supposed to click into the very small holes on the rear of the H7 bulb , they were a very loose fit so I put a thin screwdriver into the rear of the connector and forced the spring clip back into position , put the connector onto the bulb and it was a much better fit , and to hold it into position better I put a piece of scouring pad with sponge into the screw on cap hopefully to stop it wobbling about , we'll see , Heath Robinson is alive and well in my shed  :)
