I have just finished a D7 restoration. I was adjusting the carburettor this morning and generally getting it running better prior to taking her out on the road next week when I noticed that the rear lamp had blown. The wiring loom and rear light are both new and have been connected together correctly. The stop lamp is working fine. 

Anyone any idea what has caused this problem?

Is it blowing after you alter the headlamp dip to main or vise versa as I had that on my twin switch D7 several years ago . I believe it is because the dip switch breaks before it makes and then all the power goes to the rear bulb which then blows . I have now fitted a regulator / rectifier which I think should cure it but I have not rid in the dark since it was fitted .
