    1 bulb
Long-Life Tail Lamp Bulb is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Early Failure After about 18 months one of my tail lamp bulbs went out. I replaced it with this OEM part because of the "stringent H-D vibration tests". Just a few months later I had to replace it again. Since you can normally buy a pair of 1157 bulbs for about $5 I was hoping the single $5 with "stringent H-D vibration tests" would last a while, but it didn't.

brake light staying on all the time

I need a switch thats in the handlebars underneath the front brake lever . We troubleshooted the problem and found that it was a switch behind the front brake lever. When we would take a screw driver to pry on the device it would release the light and go off and only the running light would stay on like its suppose to. trying to find the right part I need ! ...ps is this the right part number you have on file - HD# 72023-51C - I have a 1995 HD 1200 SPORTSTER
Asked by: SUGARDOG
I had the same problem with my front brake. The front brake has three main parts: The Plunger, Brake Lever, and Brake Switch. When you apply the brake the lever pushes in the plunger which pushes the brake fluid forward to apply the brake. When this happens the brake switch is disengaged making the brake light turn on. When you release the lever the plunger returns and engages the switch turning off the brake light. Like you I thought I needed a new brake switch, but when I took apart my assembly I noticed that my plunger was not returning all the way. I applied some grease to the plunger shaft and pushed it in and out several times to spread the grease. It now work as it should.
