Went to replace the cornering light blub and it wouldn't light up.As i checked the socket there was a black spot like it was burn't where the base of the blub would sit.Can the socket be replaced with one from a auto or do i need one for a motorcycle.

You should be able to go to a automotive store and just replace it with one there..just make sure it fits the collar you currently have. OR you could look at the DIY on how to replace with an LED cluster...WingAdmin has GREAT tutorials:
