Question about 2003 Moto Guzzi Nevada 750 Club

1 Answer

Electrics Have noticed today that the brake light on my is permanently lit. I'm sure there is an adjustment facility for this somewhere but can anyone tell me where I should be looking? Presumably there will be separate adjusters for the rear and the front brakes? Thanks for any advice.

That's a tricky one! They are normally hydraulically-activated swiches if my LM2 3 5 and 1100 Sport are anything to go by. Do you have a faulty hydraulic switch? Disconnect one at a time - that may be the answer.,,,

Sportster keeps blowing headlight, tail light and turn signal fuses.


You've got either a short or grounding problem somewhere causing all that. Check the wiring, make sure none of it is worn through the protective jacket to the wire, which may be touching other metal on the bike and shorting out, just as it would in your home electrical wiring and fuse box. Blowing or tripping a fuse protects you and the rest of the electrical system from further damage. If you can't find anything, check with a local repair shop.

Usually when the brake light stays on, it\'s the front brake switch that is bad.

It usually gets damaged if the front master cylinder is installed incorrectly, breaking off the little bit that works off the brake lever.

A quick test is to unsolder the switch, and touch/untouch the two wires and see if the brake light functions (goes off/on).

Where is the fuse box located on a 1996 savage ls650


Hi Chris,
The fuse box is under the left side seat.

Regarding the brake light, check your brake switch located somewhere at the brake pedal arm. My guess is, it was stucked to ON position that is brake lamp is always lit.

I hope that helps.

I do think they are all on the same circuit. You have a fuse box somewhere but I have no idea of where it is. If it blows another fuse, disconnect everything you can electrically and then reconnect them one thing at a time. When the fuse blows, the last thing you reconnected is the likely culprit.

Good Luck

Noticed the brake light was alwasy on where are


There is a switch on the handlebar brake lever and a pressure switch somewhere along the metal rear brake line. Since they change the location of this pressure switch from time to time and I don't know exactly where it is on your bike, just follow the metal brake line that comes out of the back of your rear brake master cylinder. You'll recognize it when you see it. It will have two or four wires connected to two spade plugs.

If I were a betting man, I'd bet that someone at some time has loosened the master cylinder on the handlebars to adjust something or taken the throttle switch housing loose. The front brake light switch in located inside the throttle switch housing. If the master cylinder and the switch housing are not firmly pushed against each other, the brake lever will not depress the front brake switch when your release the brake. This will cause the brake light to stay on all the time. Loosen the master cylinder clamp bolts and slide the master cylinder and brake lever snuggly against the face of the switch housing. This will probably fix your problem. If not, you'll need to do a little electrical troubleshooting to determine whether the front brake switch or the rear pressure switch is bad. For this, you'll need a Volt Ohm meter and a wiring diagram.
Try the switch first.

Tail light


The tail light which stays 'on' , is it the brake light or the normal light. (if it is powerfulthn its brake light & if it's dimmer thn its a normal light).
Remedy:- if it's brighter thn it is probabley the brake light switch which mayhave siezed or needs adjustment.
I have a feeling it is the brake light tht is staying lit all the time.
