Exclamation 3rd light wont turn on!

So about a month or so ago I took my bike in to get fixed at a shop, just got a new sprocket set on. When i got it back the 3rd eye/light didnt turn on. I called the shop and they said they never touched it. I put this off until now.

I took the front fairing off and realized the light was still hooked up! I tested a spare light on the connection and it didnt turn on either!

what would cause this?? I checked the wires and nothing looked shorted or baked anywhere, nothing looked loose.

If your turn signals still work your fuse is ok, that only leaves wiring issues.

Are you sure that your second bulb is ok?

Get a meter and check the wires to see the power/ground.. Meter doesn't lie. Think everyone on a bike should have one. Can save you from a huge headache. T

yeah I guess I need to go get a meter.. I hope it really isnt the wiring. Ripping that harness out there to rewire the light is gonna be a nightmare lol

One of them is the one I made as an apprentice, the other is an el cheapo $40 job and the third is my baby - fluke - around $600 worth.

Tradesmen need quality tools... makes the job so much easier
