Just working off a parts schematic - I would first check at the light for current off the wire plug. You could have a bad bulb. If you don't have current there, check back through the circuit for an in line fuse. When you find that test there for current and make sure the fuse is good.

The ignition switch for that is just a two terminal switch, so if the sled runs, the ignition switch wouldn't be the problem.

Another place to check for continuity is the lead coming off the magneto going to the frame harness. The latter would be the circuit to the lights and other accessories. There is a pretty good chance the tach and speedometer run off the same circuit as your lights. I have a feeling when you get the lights going you'll have everything.

If it took a hit, it's probably a connector or a ground. Something that hard could have moved a number of things.
