That's a parking light. Put the ignition in P and it lights along with the tail light.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I think it's also a running light. If I'm not mistaken it stays on when riding as well (but I'll have to check to be sure.)

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

It is on any time the ignition is on or in P. You won't notice it much unless the headlight is burned out though.

On a quick side note, anyone have a reference number to an LED replacement for that parking light?

It's a 168 T10 Wedge bulb. Google that and you will find a ton.
