I installed new fog lights where my old ones was except i wired them direct to my headlight and they worked fine until I shut my bike off and when I tried to start my bike my ignition switch was sticky and stopped working and my light switch stopped working. Turn signals work and everything else but cant start with switch and light switch not working. I have checked all fuses and they are good.

By 'ignition switch', do you mean the key switch, or the push-button starter switch? If you mean the push-button switch, I suspect that, like my '98 Valkyrie, your headlamp power goes through that switch, which turns the light off while it is pressed to start the engine. The added power of your fog lights has probably overheated the switch, which can barely keep up with the headlamp alone. I'd say it is time to buy a new one, which, also like the Valk, means replacing the whole assembly for $$$.
