I had the same problem recently on my 100GS and it turned out that there was a problem with the bulb because it was able to be mounted upside down.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
