A short developed in my brake light at 10 miles. Whenever I applied the brakes, a fuse would blow and the bike would shut down. When the replacement light arrived, several hours were spent trying to ease the light from the plastic. In desperation, the plastic was stressed to the point the light came out. To everyone's amazement, no damage was done.
I think the light was put in after the part was plastic welded because it would be almost impossible to get in the very back of the tail section to do the welds with the light in there. I figured the light came apart or something, but we couldn't see how to. I guess they just squeeze it in.It isn't glued. It appears to have been placed between two parts that were then sonic welded together.
