I am trying to hook up my Acerbis LED tail/brake light to my '01 EC250. I can get the tail light to work but not the brake light. I am running the all stock electrical except for the headlight and tail light are Acerbis units.I guess is if anyone has any experience with this tail light set up? I spent all day trying to figure this puzzle outIf you have the wiring hooked up as described in the previous post try hooking the tail lamp wire up to the brake lamp. Does it work then? If so the brake switch may be defective. If not then either a bad ground or switch. Trace the wiring from the brake switch to the connectors and unplug it. You will need to test it with an ohmeter and see if it is turning on and off as you work the brake. If the switch is working you either have an open wire or the brake light bulb ground is not good.,,

2011 yamaha fz6r brake light does not work bulb is still good where could the problem lie?

There is a switch that turns the brake light on that is connected to the rear brake foot pedal...check the wiring on this switch and if the wiring is ok, then you will need to test the switch to see if it is can test the switch with a continuity tester...or have someone with one check it for you....the guys at autozone have these testers if you cannot obtain one...anyway, the switch will show open when the bike is just standing there and it should show closed when you depress the brake footpedal

Hey i'm having some trouble getting pressure in my front brake after having bled the old brake fluid and replaced it with new and then bled out any excess air. I am pretty certain that there is no...

Im not to familure with these bikes, im more of a harley guy, but i have a couple suggestions:
1. You may not have air in the lines (air bubbles may not surface the master cylinder) but, I have seen where air gets trapped in the caliper, or banjo bolts. Try when blleding them, when you put prssure on the lever, crack the banjo bolts and tighten, then pump them up again.
2. Same thing, I have also seen air trapped in the master cylinder, try bleeding the banjos again.
3. Make sure the brake disk is still has plenty of thickness, and your not right at or below the service limit.
4. If you have a 2 piston or 4 or 6 piston caliper, make sure when you pull in the lever, all your pistons are coming out and sucking back in evenly.
5. Make sure your using the correct brake pads.
6. Always make sure your using the correct DOT brake fluid, its very dangerous if you dont, and can KILL YOU.

Hope this helps some.

Check your trailer connector, you have a short circuit between the brake and tail /marker lamps. or water in your tail/brakelamp. Also check both brake switches, for water or corrosion.
