Sounds like you're not getting voltage to the rear brake light pressure switch. The voltage goes to this switch and then to the front switch.
First, find your fuse box or circuit breaker that powers the light. Since you didn't tell me what model bike we're working on the best I can tell you is that the fuse box is usually either under the seat or, in the case of a Sportster, behind the triangular plate on the left side of the bike.
Also, check the connection on the pressure switch. Find your rear brakes master cylinder. There should be a metal brake line coming out of the master cylinder. Follow it back until you come to a "Tee" fitting with a pressure switch in it. Check to make sure the wires are on the prongs of the switch securely.

The rear brake is activated by a electric/hydraulic switch located in line with the rear brake line. It is located behind the rear brake pedal, and faces forward. It is about 3 1/2" long and an inch in diameter, cylindrically shaped. That is probably what is the problem is. You can check the wires for corrosion and connection first.

Since neither of your brake lights are working, I'd suspect either the bulb, the socket, or the wiring to the stoplight. Remove the screws and the brake light lens. Take the bulb out and replace it with a new bulb. Look into the socket and make sure the two contacts are clean.

SOURCE: my brake light is not
If your rear brake light is not working but the front is, this means the pressure switch for the rear brake light is bad. Find the rear brake master cylinder and follow the metal line out of the master cylinder as it goes back towards the rear wheel. In the line, you'll find a "tee" fitting with a pressure switch screwed into it. Make sure all the wires are on the switch. If so, the switch itself may be bad. Replace the switch.
