I have an issue with the tail light on my XB12.

I don't think it is the standard light and is a LED type.

The white lights that are lighting the number plate have started flashing

I've checked the connections and all seems ok, it's not affecting any other lights

Any ideas why this may be happening?

Any ideas where I could get a replacement rear light?

Thanks

Andy

My Chinesium LED light on my S1 did the same, I just bought another one to replace it (less than a fiver including shipping from Chinaland - no wonder the High Street is dead). They seem to be more expensive for the XBs, but to be honest the standard light with a bulb is better than any aftermarket tat.

Those type led taillights for the xb's are expensive :ill:

Or have a look at ebay ,but make sure you get one with the right distance between mounting screws!
