I mounted two fog lights to throw some light on the actual road a couple months ago. Today I noticed only the left one is out.

Anyone know if this is a common thing and if it's easy fix or not? I'm over the BS this week. Thanks in advance!

Brand? Its likely you'll just have to buy another and replace it.

... it's dangerous to go with fog ... even with headlights.
Is there a lot of fog in NY?

i had a set of ebay special fog lights on my NC750X that the previous owner had fitted and had the same issue. Not an electrician but did some troubleshooting with a multimeter, eliminated the possibility of wiring issues and deduced that it was f***ed. i ended up buying some cree ones shortly after and have served me well for over a year.

Hi Attila,
Sometimes we get fog, I do NOT drive in those conditions. I put them on the scooter so that when dusk/night hits, I can have some light on the actual road in front of me. They're just called fog-lights. The high up beams on the scooter do nothing to illuminate the actual roads, but they let the cars know I exist.

I bought some lights off ebay. The labor to mount them was extensive. I'm trying to decipher whether or not I can just twist out the light (but of course I'd need a replacement bulb) and whether or not replacement bulbs even exist. What a pita. Thanks for the advice.

Oh .. I understand, they are mainly to aid night vision ...
