Rear led light failure on Dragster

Anyone else had this

It started as a one off a month back and failed completely today

Been told it's warranty but interested to see if anyone else has had this?

Dash changes wording to malfunction anything above 5mph and all dash settings become unusable

Most annoyingly it's a 200 mile drive to get it done at shop so I'll just ride it until it's due it's 3800 service which is only 900 miles to go

I've seen the tail light issue before on the forum.
I believe it was a small connector problem, easy to fix if I remember correctly !

Cheers,

I had the same thing happen on my Rivale. Same dash indication. It was an issue with the light assy, not a connector for me.

Dean it is impossible to do a diagnosis on the issue being miles away.
So get the seat off and find the cable connecting to the rear light.
Check for loose connections, faulty plugs, damaged cables etc.
Might check with a multimeter single leads for passage.
Might check if any current is arriving on the tail light at all.
The work shop will not do anything mystical other.
Alone You pay for it and in the worst case You can tell them straight away what You need.
But might You find the fault by yourself and can happily flash around again tomorrow.

Thanks for your input. I'll take Tyne seat off and look for anything loose. I don't have anything that can check current unfortunately so if it's not straight away noticeable I'll have to leave it with the bike shop

I have pretty much a full tools work shop but it's all spanners, screw drivers and sockets haha

Took the light out, couldn't see anything loose... Did a manly prod and cable wobble and couldn't get it to come back on

So

It's going in the shop

bad tail light assy

My left side tail light (and brake light) failed, intermittent at first and then a hard failure. I pulled the seat and used a DVM to check the voltages on the connector the light assy plugs into, and all looked good, so I assumed it was a faulty light assembly. I checked out the connector for the other side light, and since they were the same connectivity, I swapped the left and right lights in their connectors, the left side light was still bad, so I knew then that it was the left side tail light assembly. When I mentioned this to the mechanic at the dealer, he said that is how he checks them, just reverse the connectors and see if it stays with the light assembly, that is, left is bad with either source connector, and right side is good with either source connector.
