Bulbs for taillights
Pure taillights without an integrated brake light are rarely on the road anymore. Even with old Harleys, which were first registered well before the time after which a brakelight became mandatory - by now most owners have upgraded for safety reasons.
Bulbs for taillights do not need to shine as brightly as those for brakelights and therefore draw power below 10W, bulbs for brake lights draw around 20W or more. Bulbs for combined brake/taillights have two wattages because they also have two filaments: e.g. 21/5W or 23/8W are common values. When choosing, you have to consider not only the voltage (6 or 12 V) and the wattage, but also the socket, i.e. the part with which the bulb makes contact with the wires. If in doubt, simply compare the dimensions and number of contacts with our drawings.
