Hi - I just registered to become a member of this forum - my name is Bob & I am from Oregon, USA. I have 3 early K bikes and am currently working on a 1994 K-75, that the tail light became inoperable lately. Any help with this problem, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again - Bob

Welcome along Bob,

Have a look at the obvious first - fuse no. 2 supplies the tail light and parking light. Check it with a test meter rather than just visually. If that fuse is good, then check bulb with meter too...and then the connector. Often it is the simple things that cause us grief.

Good luck

Welkome aboard Bob from another K75 owner on the other end of the globe.

I'm sure you will love the K75 once you have it sorted - everyone that I know who has one does. Born Again Eccentric came all the way to Australia to look at mine (not really, but he did see it while he was here).

Cheers

Tail light when you take it off you will see a connector block mounted. Worth a clean, so too are the bulb holders. Does your bulb fail warning light come on? Red light on the panel.
