Hi guys I recently just purchased a Kawasaki Vulcan s ABS 2016 model and I just noticed today after my ride that my tail light, brake light (when I use both front and rear brake) don’t work and my Parker light (light above the headlight) isn’t working. The headlight and indicators are working perfectly. I tried looking only to where the fuses are but I can’t find a definite answer. I found the fuses on the right side of the radiator but none of them specify any lights. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

Look on left side of your bike, you should see a panel with a key hole under the seat. Unlock it, fuse is in there.

Never mind sorry guys I found it it’s under the right fender cover next to the radiator on the right side. It’s called 10A Br.HORN next to the 15A FAN and 10A SPARE

Hello, I'm having the exact same problem (for a 2019 vulcan s) after a little accident (I went off road and drove in tall grass over 5-6 meters before dropping the motorcycle...).
Noob's questions, do I need to change all the fuse or some in particular?
Thank you for your help

Check to make sure your brake light switches are working. It could possibly be a break in the wire or a bad connection at connector.

I don't think so cause the light works when I switch turning signal but I'm not sure.
Maybe it's the wire around the brake switch as suggested by @JerryKVS
I think I'll just go to a mechanic and ask to do a full check up as well while he's at it

Turn signal and brake lights are two different bulbs and circuits.

I found this really helpful. My tail light stop illuminating during a ride. Turned out my Brake Light/Horn (Fuse 10 A) was blown. Replaced it and adjusted the brake light switch. I don’t know if it’s just my bike or if this is common for these bikes, but the brake light switch seems really easy to “adjust/loosen” on its own and doesn’t really lock into place. I’m going to swing by kawi tomorrow and see if that’s normal for it or if I need a new one.
Thanks guys ✌


Also check if brake light switch needs adjustment.
