05 ZX3 5spd Reverse lights INOP

Someone recently pointed out to my reverse lights are INOP. So I checked the bulbs & Fuse both are good. All of my other lights are in working order. Anyone got any advise?

how did you check to see if your bulbs are good?

i would suspect the reverse light switch, usually its around the shifter... its a small switch that completes a light circuit when the shifter is in reverse... but im not sure where its at.

Switch is located on the gearbox at the front side, as far as I remember.
