Unhappy Run/Turn/Break

Ok, 2011, FLTRX, less than 7 months old, less than 5,000mi.
A friend pointed out over the weekend, while we were 150 miles from home at DelMarVa Bike Fest, that my right rear signal was out.
Actually the running light was out but the brake and turn still worked, THANK GOD.
Well, what's the general consensus, is it just the bulb? (please say yes)

Thanks in advance,
HSP

Yes.



What are we agreeing to................
Warranty on light bulbs ?!?!? ... oh nevermind different thread...
Seriously though very likely the bulb so check it first, then check/look/touch up under the fender for any hanging wires.

Yes.....

....I'm hoping it's just a bulb and not symptomatic of a larger problem.
I realize that no matter what the problem, it's covered under the warranty but that doesn't make it any easier for me to leave "my baby" at the stealer.
Ya know?

Check the bulb but I would think it would be in the turn/brake/running light control module. The rear bulb is a single filament 1156 bulb so if your turn and brake signal lights up OK it would seem that the bulb is in working order.

Mark , On the newer custom 10 up the rear turn signals are double filament. They are Run/turn/brake.

Smile Forgot

I went by my stealer, talked to the kid who was "manning" the service counter.
He told me I would have to bring it in.
"C'mon, it's just a bulb! You can't just gimme a bulb?!?!"
The kid wouldn't budge.
Just then, as luck would have it, my salesman walked into the service department.
Needless to say, I walked away with a new bulb.
(Sometimes it's the small victories that mean the most.)
So I got home, popped the lens off, clicked out the old, clicked in the new, turned the switch, "let there be light and there was light".
A wise man once said, "Sometimes it's the small victories that mean the most."
OH YEAH, THAT WAS ME!!
