Why dont my hand brake wont turn on brakelight

Remove switch from handlebar bracket, turn key on, brakelight should come on... depressing the plunger should cut it off. If not, replace the switch ( make sure the switch is plugged in first)

No horn or turn signals or brakelight keeps blowing fuse

Hi Anonymous, you need to get out your test light and start tracking down the short. Start at the ignition switch, then the handlebar switch housings and work your way back to the fuses. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.

Handlebars brake switch replacement

It is a plunger style switch and is located inside the right handlebar contol. Cut the wires about 2 inches or so from the old switch. Solder the wires from the new switch to the wires you cut from the old switch. Cover the solder joints with heat shrink tubing. Be careful when reinstalling the front brake lever so you don't damage the plunger on the new switch.

I took the apes off my 2009 rk and installed stock-style bars with internal wires And after completion the bike wont start and the abs light is flashing and the front brakelight switch has power on both...

I don't know a lot about the later model bikes since I specialize in repairing the older bikes but I guess you damaged your front brake light switch in the right side handlebar switch housing. The switch sticks out of the side of the housing that faces the front MC. That's my best guess.

Good Luck

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

Where is the brake fuse box located in my harley road glide 2008. barke light stuck on,blinkers working. think i blew a fuse.

Have you been working on anything on the right handlebar? If so, you probably broke the front brake light switch. This is a common occurrence. Some times they break on their own as well. From the bottom side of the brake lever on the handlebars, look up and see if you see a pin that comes out and rest against a tab on the lever. If so, press this back into the right handlebar switch housing to see if the brake light goes off. If it does and it only take a small amount of movement, you may can loosen the front master cylinder slightly and move it down against the right handlebar switch housing. If that doesn't work. I'm afraid you're going to have to replace the switch.

Good Luck

Rear brake light not working

The brake light is turned on and off by either of two switches on your bike. The front brake lever has a switch located in the right handlebar switch housing. When you squeeze the lever, a pad on the lever moves forward allowing the switch button to move forward making contact which in turn switches the brake light on.

The rear brake lever operates a plunger inside the rear brake master cylinder that pressurizes the rear brake and rear brake hose and line. The rear brake line has a tee fitting in it along it's run with a pressure switch in the tee. Once the pressure on the line gets high enough, the switch turns on the brake light.

If your rear brake light switch is not working, check to make sure the wires are on the prongs of the switch. If they are, replace the switch. It simply screws out and a new one screws in. Most of the time you don't have to bleed the brakes as long as you don't move the rear brake pedal with the switch out. Check the rear brake for proper operation prior to riding the bike.

Good Luck

When I put my 250 Venox in gear the engine quits. It has very low mileage.

Either the clutch plates are stuck together (unlikely) or your side stand cut out switch or your clutch lever switch (on handlebar lever if fitted) is faulty

Hi my horn, brakelight and indicators will not work any ideas ? On my yamaha dt50mx 1989

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The horn, brakelight and indicators all get power from the battery through a red wire, a fuse and another red wire. Do a backtrace using a testlight (instead of a voltmeter). Should you be interested, the wiring diagram of a Yamaha DT50MX maybe viewed here.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

* barkbusters for the handlebars -- a kind of bracket that clips on over the front of the control levers, protecting your knuckles from rear-view mirrors and the levers from bending backwards when the bike gets knocked over. * headlight modulator -- a device that makes your headlight vary its brightness up and down 4 times a second and makes you more conspicuous. * brakelight modulator -- a device that makes your brakelight flicker ~4 times a second for about a second when you hit the brakes. * front running lights -- two-filament bulbs in your turn signals to light them up at 5W all the time. * a louder horn
