hi everybody
I have a 1987 K100 LT, stripped down, and i am now a proud owner for about 2 months.

I am having a problem with my tail/brake light, which works intermittently, sometimes at start up, but then doesn't work at all. Both bulbs work otherwise and there are no wires that are crossed/worn out, am i dealing with a bulb interface unit problem?

Thanks ahead of time

Got Clymers?

Do you have a manual/wiring diagram?

Are you new to the K-bikes?

I only ask because there's a wealth of info resources if you don't know about them.

I lucked into the same year LT last year and just got finished going all over her including a spline lube so I know what you are dealing with.

As for your bulb problem, if both lights are not working at the same time, I'd suspect a break in the ground wire some where. Time to get out a test light or continuity tester and find out where the electrons are escaping.
