Both marker/tail lights are out on my '01 929. The brake lights work fine, and the bulbs are both relatively new (1 is 2-3 months old). Is it possible the filament burned out in both for the tail lights and not the brake lights? I have had the brake light and tail light (dual filament in same bulb) burn out one at a time but both at the same exact time even though 1 bulb is almost new? :idunno:

What do you guys/gals think?

It's possible for the filament to burn out for the taillight first, since it's always on, but it's weird that it happened to both at the same time. I'd get a replacement bulb first and try it, they're cheap enough. Otherwise, check your connectors and wiring.

Use a testlight or a voltmeter. Next time but LongLife or HeavyDuty bulbs.

Make sure the wires haven't come off from the brake light trigger on the front brake lever and the spring is still connected on the rear brake lever.

Or get a '54 and never worry about the LEDs.

Or get a new 1000RR or Gixxer 1K! :D
