Hi Kawi owners

First see if the bulb is any good(possible broken filiment) and then replace it with a known good bulb. If still no luck, get a multimeter set for VDC(Volts, Direct Current) range of 20. Put the RED probe inside the bulbe socket(with the bulb removed) and the BLACK probe on either the battery Negative(-) post or a good frame ground.

Turn on the ignition & start the bike, checking for voltage in the bulb socket, if no voltage, start by checking the many and various electrical connectors related to the tail light circuit.
