More than likely, the problem is the rear brake pressure switch. Find the rear brake master cylinder and follow the metal line that comes out of the back of it until you come to a switch with two sets of wires connected to it. This is the pressure switch. To replace it, simply screw the old one out and screw the new one in. Do not press the foot pedal with the old switch removed. You should not even have to bleed the brake if you do it right. Have the new switch ready to screw in before you take the old one out. One out the other one right back in.

SOURCE: foot brake pedal not operating
You seem to have duplicated this question. But in case you look at this thread, not the first one you added. I have replied to the original saying:
The chances are that your brake light switch is jammed. The switch is connected to a spring, which in turn, hooks onto your brake pedal. There is a picture of one of these units available here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MOTORCYCLE-YAMAHA-TYPE-REAR-STOP-SWITCH-BRAKE-LIGHT-/310231989451 (It may not be identical to yours, but it will give you an idea if you are unsure of what you are looking for).
Two likely causes
1) The spring is under tensioned (Or if you're really unlucky, it has come off!) There is an adjustable thread on the switch which allows you to move it closer to, or further away from the pedal, relaxing or tensing the spring. increase the tension on the spring by adjusting the switch unit so it is further from the pedal (But test that when the brake is released, the light goes out).
2) The unit is jammed as a result of age and or corrosion or dirt. Clean the unit, unclip the spring from the brake pedal and pull the centre pin of the switch in and out repeatedly to ease the movement. This may get it working again. If exercising the unit manually for 5 minutes doesn't fix the problem, you may need to replace it.
