NO power at the aforementioned connector on the sub-frame. Anyone know the path?
If I have a lamp out indicator, It's not lit.
There is some possible confusion on complexity and wiring chart as a 2001 USA specs K1200RS is like all early models (1997-2000), but a 2001 sold in Canada and Europe can have the newer ABS with the front nose fairing facelift.
I will assume you have a real 2001 USA specs with the simple ABS2 brake system. See attached fuse chart from owners manual. Fuse 1 for brake light and Fuse 2 for taillight and licence plate light. Test for current at the fuse-box and use Ohmmeter to check fuse in case of micro-failure not visible.
The large connector on right sub-frame (under seat) has many wires for taillight brake light and flashers. Assuming nothing was modified:
(1) Gray /Yellow wire to feed current to BRAKE light
(2) Gray / Black wire to feed current to TAIL light (always on when ignition is on)
(3) Brown wire for common ground for both wires above
If problem cannot be found at fuse or at large connector, you will have to dig further back. On a 1998-2001 USA specs K1200Rs with ABS2, the rear Tail light wiring is very simple (from ignition switch to Fuse 2 to sub-frame connector... to rear light). On 2nd generation having Integral-ABS (brake with servos), it is a whole other more complicated story....
