Parking light issues

I've searched for this issue and wasn't able to find anything. As of this morning, the parking light is not staying on and flutters frequently (sporadic flashing). Could it be a loose connection, loose fuse, moisture from the elements getting into the connectors? Bike barely has 2,500 miles on it. Bought it brand new in early September of this year.

Garage
I suppose it should be under warranty, so it is better to go to the dealer service.

Be careful not to use the parking function a lot. It will own your battery and you will be left stranded. Happened to me twice when i first got my bike. Had no clue that was a function. You should have seen me trying to trouble shoot as I was pissed off as hell trying to figure out why my battery kept dying

Was able to resolve the issue. The bulb blew out. Replaced it with an amber LED. New problem now. I lost one of those rubber nuts that the screws for the wind screen go into. It must've popped off when I reinstalles the windscreen and wasn't aligned properly. I have no clue where it went to. Could I just use a regular nut, or do I need to use that specific part?

EDIT: They're called rubber rawl well nuts.

Cheap LEDs don't last well in that light. Too much heat build up. I got fed up of changing them every other week, sucked it up and paid 20 dollars for a Sylvania 194 LED. No issue in 3 months. It has it's own current limiting resister and heat dissipation all in the 194 package

I believe these were Sylvania as well.
