Question about 2006 Ducati 999 R Xerox
I own a 2005 999. The tail light (running light) keeps burning out. The parking brake light still works. It is the dual filament type of light bulb. The light does not last more than a few minutes. What's going on here? What do I need to check for? Any and all help appreciated. Thank you
I've heard that using plate re-locators and after-market exhausts can cause vibration that'll break the filaments in the bulbs. I just had a turn signal go out this morning. The (very standard and readily available) model 5008 is the direct replacement for the turn signal bulbs and a 2-pack at the auto store (Autozone, etc) is $1.75 or so. 12 volt, 10 watt. There are LED replacements for them that won't break, but since the stock bulb is 10 watts, you'd be hard pressed to find an LED bulb that puts out that brightness. If you go LED, you also have to make sure it has a resistor built in. LED bulbs intended for turn signal use have them, ones for brake lights etc don't. PS: I think the brake/ running light bulb is an 1157, dual filament. I haven't had to replace that one yet though so I'm not sure, check it first!!!
