Tail lights & turn signals not working

The tail light and turn signals quit working while I was riding today.

First thing that occurred to me was that a fuse blew off.
I am at work and cannot get to the manual. So need to know
where is the fuse box?

also if it's not the fuse what else could it be?
has this happened to anyone?

Thanks

Are the tail and signals connected at all? Weird how they're both not working.

Yes .. the tail & signals are connected on the same fuse.

The fuse marked Tail is for the tail light & turn signals ... the fuse marked signal is for the horn & brake light.

Today I met a man, I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today. I Wish that he would go away.

Thanks man. Do you know if there are some extra fuses in the fuse box?

Lol I think Ceek has his FZ6 Service Manual permenently attached to his hip! This guy is lightning fast with the schreen shots and page references! Well done!

I think Ceek can find, snapshot and post the page faster than I can find it in my manual!

Great shot of the fuse box on the bike. My dealer told me that was the chocolate milk dispenser! Major selling point for me! Saved me asking them to fix it cause it's never worked properly...

Canada is like your attic - you forget about it, but once you're there, you're like "hey, there's some really cool stuff up here!"

Be sure to get another spare fuse. That fuse blew because something grounded out somewhere. Probably under the exhaust due to melting or between the frame and the side cover due to pinching.

If I speak to people calmly and clearly, I can articulate my position- especially if they can see that the safety is off.
