I think it is the POs fault. And yes there are 2 bulbs because dual filament is future tech.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but it's an 1157 bulb, which is a single, dual-filament bulb.
Yeah that was corroborated. Single bulb with dual filament. One of the filaments probably burned out.
a detailed explanation given to me. There are some good ppl in this forum who give it to you str8 without ego...:
"the running light and brake light are separate filaments in the same bulb. If that's not it find a local friend that has a multimeter, get the schematic and trace the voltage. Electricity has to have a complete path to flow meaning there has to be a path from the negative terminal through wires and circuitry back to the positive terminal without any break in the path. i.e. if you take the bulb out it breaks the path you should be able to read the full voltage at this point."
You went back on your word. You posted you wouldnt start a new open thread. You are an enabler. You are now ignored. Fucking lying sack of self loving shit.

Then why didn't you send me a PC me 4 months ago instead of last week when you sent a PC to me bragging about how you had the thread altered .........
Personally..... I do not think he was talking about your taillight.
Yamaha77 you are a narcissistic poser. It is my opinion that you think that the motorcycle world and this forum lives on 'the look' and that we envy your incredible style. WTF! Your threads may start with a question but seem to be driven by fashion? Are you hoping for compliments on your shoes and whatever?
PS. That wad of keys hanging off you belt loop is going to scratch your tank. I absolutely hate your red shoes....you blue helmet does not 'go' with the 77 Bountiful Blue either.
And.....your wife is going to leave you ......I can't imagine that she can put up with this shit either.
My apologies to all XS650 forum members who are relatively normal people who do not appreciate my rant.
Quote...........Gloves are off:
Im rich. I have a bentley flying spur and a Bentley Mulsanne. I have 4 exotic cars. I hang with MODELS, celebs, i could point you to a blog post a CELEB made about meeting ME! DO you think I care ahout your midwestern fashion sense? NO. I have GENERATIONAL wealth. Do you know what that even means?
I have so much money its kept in an INVESTMENT TRUST account, NOT a regular bank. But you wouldnt know how rich ppl live.
My instagram is RICH with beautiful HAPPY ppl I know, unlike ppl like you who hate from the sidelines. I am KNOWN and respected. Ive had articles done on me. A PROMINENT magazine did a story on me and my wealth and my family's wealth. I grew my business to 5 million profit last year.
You think your little hatred and your opinion matters to me? LOL ..............Quote
With a rant like that.........YEP..............LOL
house shopping is one of the true tests of a marriage.
The '77 model's big round stop/tail light has one twin-filament bulb in it.
The XS650GS's red housebrick stop/tail light was the first to have two twin-filament bulbs.
Love the new footwear.
Google Stanley Holloway's 1950s music hall song "Brown Boots"
I'll just say from one 650er to another spread the wealth my man, I need some parts!
This the Garage..................were here talk and work on bikes ................don't bring your home baggage here. Use the lounge if you need to impress or unload your troubles.
Then why is it for sale for only $2600? Surely your superior intelligence and station wouldn't allow you to spend $8000 on a $2600 bike, would it?
Would you give me a bike? I'd like a new GoldWing. This is just like sitting on Santa Claus's lap.
How many Santa Clauses does it take to change a light bulb?
Wow guys - I've figured it out and here's the formula:
1) ask a simple question posted along with a photo of His Lordship in a fancy pants pose beside a bike (recently its that poor unfortunate '77-D owned by this maroon)
2) add a little bit of irrelevant bragging about cars, shoes, houses, cologne, nose rings, man-purses etc etc etc which has nothing to do with the lame@ss technical question
3) receive useful advice from someone along with a comment that the irrelevant stuff is....you know, irrelevant
4) go nuts on the responder with all sorts of snotty accusations blah blah blah
5) add A HUGE SH!TLOAD of bragging about trips to Paris, hanging with models, meeting the President, shopping for a new home in "Cali", blah, blah blah.....ad nauseum....
5) get all self-righteous about being rich and important and it's a free country and "nobody's gonna run me off", blah blah blah
6) make lots of dark threats about private messages etc etc etc etc
7) someone (recently its usually Fred) steps in to try cool things down
.....then rinse and repeat.
This process has been done many times about everything from carburetor problems to weak brakes to hard starting to oil leaks to now, how the f@cking light switch works.
What's next....what colour should the air in my tires be?
What a fun thing it is to simply sit back and watch - but imagine how much more fun it would be if NOBODY RESPONDED - then I'll bet we'd really get treated to some hot stuff.
I've got to go to my dacha now to recover from my gender change operation.
By the way, I'll be flying over on my own personal magic carpet while smoking rolled $100 bills that have been dipped in Big Mac sauce by Queen Elizabeth herself. Oh, one more thing, my dacha is right next to the Putins (see photo below).
Sure things go off track in a thread and sometimes a car or even a wife is mentioned in the GARAGE, but for all intents and purposes the GARAGE is a place to come to to work on, and fix up bikes, to forget about your personal trouble and enjoy our time here and help each other, or show of a build done or in progress. It is about all of us on an equal footing no mater who we are, a surgeon, aircraft engineer, builder, council worker, on a benefit, retired, how much or little money we have..............This place levels the playing field to a common desire and goal.
The best thing was to let this whole thing come to a head like this in the lounge. he finally took the gloves off and showed himself to be who he really is................ He has proved he can participate without the........ me.Me.ME, MEEEE ...........so it is up to us to make sure he doesn't do that or make it so it ends up back in here with a slinging match........... Learn or leave.............he doesn't want to leave then he has learn to work in with the consensus.
It is up to all of us, and there is enough, to keep him focused on his questions. If anyone doesn't want to contribute that's fine but there are some that will so if a thread is in progress, it is congenial, and i see some clarification may help when some future person is searching threads for information, then why not.
My opinion on this guy is not going to change, i honestly don't think the dramas are over....................But imagine if we did actually succeed to have him change his attitude to how he presents himself...........even if it is only on here.
how many of this guy does it take to change a lightbulb?
