Lights

Postby Basschaser » Sat Apr 05, 2014 2:13 am



I have a question about lights. My truck check engine soon light came on so I had to ride the bike to work Its was dark when I left The lights on the radio panel had little lights that lite up except the cassette door button and the air shocks buttons didn't light up should these have lite up to? The bike is a 1995 year. Do I have bulbs out or is this normal? Thanks Larry.

Thanks WA. What about the buttons for the Air Shocks and the CB knobs did they light up also? The screen on the CB lights up when I turn it on, but not the knobs when I turn the lights on nor do the Button for the Air Shocks. Thanks again for the info.

The lights for the left and right controls all depend on which model of bike you have, if it is a SE then yes these lights should be lit, only the SE model had lighted controls for the CB, Turn Signal ect.
