    Unhappy Back light Suzuki TU 250X

    Hi
    I have been told twice now that my back light isn't working while I ride at night (1997 Suzuki TU 250X). When I say, 'do you mean my brake-light'? They say, 'No - that's OK - your back light'. As far as I know I have a 1 brake-light and 2 indicator lights plus a reflector. Where is this back light that doesn't work???? Can anyone enlighten me? I am not a novice but not bike mechanic either. Any one familiar with this bike please advise.
    Thanks

    The bulb in your tail light has two filaments (the bit that glows) in it as you can see in the picture. One that runs all the time as your normal tail light, and the other lights up when you apply the brakes.



    Replace the bulb.

    As is common for most filament type globes they are sensitive to vibration...and power fluctuations.

    Grab an LED type dual rear globe..it'll last for as long as you have the bike..and will only fail if you suffer a rear impact.( so theoretically should last ages..)

    Hope that helps.....G

    Enjoy the ride.

    Or if you don't have the cash buy 2 of the std type filament and wrap 1 in bubble wrap ..keep it under the seat or just in the same place as the globe would go..;-)

    the amount of cars I see on the road with no tail lights is significant, the amount I see with no lights at all is frightening. my post was aimed at them, not OP
