Hi Terry, this problem is usually cause by the front brake light switch being out of alignment or the button not retracting all the way keeping your brake light on in a closed circuit, depending on your model year. 1996 and earlier models the right handlebar switch housing had to be tight up against the front brake control housing in order for the front brake light switch button to be fully compressed to stop continuity. In 1997 and later models the button was alot shorter and was more of an alignment issue in the switch housing. Rear brake light switches located in the rear brake line TEE can also fail in the closed circuit condition but extremely rare, usually they fail in an open circuit condition where the brake light is not able to activate.

No brake light


Are you sure neither is actually working. A common mistake is that the brake light is actually stuck on and it's thought to not be working at all, when in fact it actually is. Common problem is the rear switch. Disconnect the wires and see if the light goes out. If it does then your problem is a stuck rear brake switch. If it doesn't do anything then take a paper clip and jump the 2 wires together. Does it make the light work? If it does then the switch is bad , if it doesn't then I would check to see if your front brake switch is broken. Common problem is somebody taking apart the switch housings and snapping the switch with the front brake lever. If it looks torn or missing a piece then replace the switch. If all those check OK , then I would look under the rear fender to see if the wires are blown apart from taking a hard bump and the tire catching the wire harness. If nothing else then check the harness for the rear brake light. Take apart the rear light cover and look at the bulb and harness. If it's a grey bulb socket with the blade type bulb replace it. Those things go and give you all sorts of problems. If you do replace the harness get the lens kit instead. It comes with both the lens , the harness and bulb for about 6 bucks more than just buying the harness.

Tail light stuck on


You did not say what year or model bike you have but if the brake light is stuck on, you probably have a bad front brake light switch. The switch is located in the right handlebar switch housing and protrudes out so that it is operated by the front brake lever. Make sure that the front brake master cylinder is adjusted down tight against the right handlebar switch housing.

Good Luck

Brake light stuck on


If your brake light is "stuck on", it's probably that front brake light switch. Loosen the front brake master cylinder and slide it down as close to the right handlebar switch housing as you can. If this does not turn the light off, the switch is probably bad. The switch is located inside the right handlebar switch housing. To change it, you'll have to go into the housing, desolder the wires to the switch, and solder in a new switch.

Good Luck

My new duplicated key screwed up my gears!


When you say "Push the button", I am assuming that you are talking about the button in front of the shifter, yes?

If so, the problem that you have is a "shift interlock" problem.

Try this. Start the car, and have someone stand at the back of the car. Push the brake pedal.
Ask them if the brake lights come on. If not, you have a bad brake lamp fuse, or a bad brake lamp switch above the brake pedal. The brake light circuit ALSO puts power to the shifter interlock so you can take it out of park. No power to the shifter interlock; you will need to push the button. Doubt that the duplicate key has anything to do with this.
Hope this helps. Please consider good feedback for this solution.
