No tail light on hyper 1100 s

Hi all ,I am not near the bike so if I answer this myself later I will let the hive know.

I noticed when doing a shakedown run (just did the 22k mile service) on my 09 1100s that my tail light was not working. No brake or running light. Headlight and front signals, dash etc all worked fine.

Is there a fuse for the rear taillight ? The tail light is an aftermarket unit with integrated turn signals. I did not use the signal function as my fronts are bi-directional bar ends and the previous owner chopped the signal connectors of the wiring harness.

It worked previously but when I removed the tail light something was rattling inside.

Ive already ordered a new tail light (I sometimes break things trying to fix them ) and will replace the connectors as I have been meaning to do that anyway.

Question is ... could it just be a fuse ? I kind of doubt there is a dedicated brake light fuse but without my home PC and service manual I figured I'd ask the inter-webs.

Thanks !!!

My service manual shows fuses only for lighting overall. Not tail light only. Headlight and signals are fine. There are only a few fuses anyway. New tail light will be here soon. Fingers crossed !!

That is true. If fuse were blown, you have other stuff out too. Had an LED combo on my 2 FZ1's. Did same thing. Vibrations and bumps wound up breaking a bulb off. I wound up installing rubber grommets on the mounting posts to quell the vibes. I believe on most bikes they are standard. Dont know why mine didnt.

Best of luck.
