    Check all earths are clean and tight. Main earth, most likely.


    There's no such thing
    as a "normal" biker.

    Re: Rear light n indicators

    ....... is anything else (weird) happening? Like headlight low beam not working? I ask because my headlight low bulb stopped working and it was due to a sludgy dirty indicator switch contact...... so a few things could be going on as a result of wear and age at other sites. Work your way through all the suspects, but if you haven't popped off the switch clusters yet, then take 5 mins to do that and spray some WD40 into the contacts on both the LHS and starter side.......

    PS Check for pinched or worn insulation out the back and under the tail cowl..... in case any tool kit or other has been rubbing against the tail lamps etc. Battery lugs nice and clean? All connections from the R&R job correct and firm? Wiring in good nick?
