    Do you have a repair manual? Not for complete repairs but good for reference.
    Someone should chime in here in a bit, I suck at electrical gremlins on bikes.

      My first thought it may be a fuse.
      Multimeter - use it to check if earthing is ok?

        Cheers Charlie and Bill, I have the original owners booklet , which aint much help, bulbs fine , fuse fine, so I think its time to hand it over to a mate who's not completely colour blind, like me, and has half a clue about the electrical dark arts!!! .. Thanks for the suggestions lads, I'll keep you posted

          You have a multimeter? Check if you get 12V current at the brake bulb socket when you brake (Be sure to test the brake circuit, not the parking lamp one). My bet is for a broken wire somewhere...

          Does the parking lamps turns "on" when you turn on the ignition switch ??
