I have a Aspy, the PO had the cornering lights installed and they worked when I bought the bike but I have noticed they aren't working now, anybody know where I should start. I know that the left bulb is ok, the right may be blown but I wouldn't think 1 would make them both quit working, I am not sure which fuse or relay to start with so if anyone can offer a suggestion, this winger would be most appreciative, thanks

Check the bulb holders, they often give trouble. Wiggle the good bulb in the holder and see if it works.

Don't touch the glass of the bulbs. Use a rag to hold them.

Are they hooked up to be on all the time? Or with turn signals?

Have you cleaned the turn switch with electrical contact cleaner in the past year?

I tried to move them in the holders, nothing came on, they are used as turn signal markers and I have cleaned all the switches not long after I bought the bike. Thanks for the replies, I am thinking a fuse or relay just not sure where to look.

The corning light get there power from the tail light relay, does your tail lights work? Check the grounds, the corning lights get there ground on the frame just above the dip stick.

As far as i now , the aspengade is not equipped with cornering ligts from factory , so yours could be connected in many "homemade" ways .
I would check for power on the bulb , and work back from there .

The drops(for the bulbs) just plug into the factory harness, so it should be the tail light relay, and yes the taillight is working, I will check grounds and do continuity on the bulbs to see if they just blew out. Thanks guys

Are those the ones that just light up when you use the turn sig? They don't blink just light up when the turn sig is on.
That seems to be the way mine are wired.

Just a bit of info..the blubs used for the cornering lights are dual filament bulbs, but only one filament is used. If you solder a small wire across the two contacts on the bottom of the bulb, you will get twice the output (brighter lights).

The stock bulbs tend to croak when you hit a bump and the hot filament breaks. That's why I switched over to LEDs

Would that increase the heat also ?
I had a problem with these bulbs blowing all the time partly due to overheating and cracking and theyre also awkward to replace ( over here anyway ) .
I have also switched to LED
