Question about 2005 Buell Blast

1 Answer

Brake light comes on, but not tail light

I have a 2005 Buell Blast. I got pulled over by a cop because my tail lamp is out. When I press the brake, the light comes on. I got home, and prepared to change a bulb, thinking there were two. I opened it to only find one bulb. How can the bulb work when the brake is pressed, but not for normal tail light function? Electrical problem?

Hello Jason...How you like your Buell? I have a Thunderbolt.
As for the light problem...No...the bulb is a dual element, one element for the taillight and another for the brake. If you hold the old bulb up and look at it closely you can probably see where one of the elements has burned or broken. Just replace it. The tailight should work then.
Hope this helps

Buell cyclone m2 2002. How do you remove the seat??? Thanks!!


Older Buell Blast, mine, has a lever toward the middle of the seat, accessed from the wheel well. Pull the lever toward the right (front brake) side of the bike. Lift the back of the seat near the tail on both sides and pull back to slip the front tongue of the seat back away from the gas tank.

Found the above........any good?

Replace rear light


Sounds like you need to have it installed professionally. You could damage your wiring on the bike if you mess it up.
