Question about Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic Motorcycles
Have you checked the brake light switches?
They usually have yellow and brown wires
on them. The rear switch is near the rear
brake pedal and has a little spring on it.
Hold it and turn the nut anticlockwise
until the brake light goes out.
Make sure it comes on when you step
on the brake pedal.
If the brake light still stays on, check the
little switch near your front brake lever.
It also has yellow and brown wires.
It might be faulty. Try disconnecting the
wires connector and see if the brake light goes out.
Make sure you have the right bulb also.
It will be 12volt 21/5 Watt or 12volt 32/3 CP(candlepower)

On your side plate. the black is generally the ground. red is probably brake light and blue is probably running light. You cant connect the red to the black. that will short it out. reconnect the wires the way they were and replace the fuse.
Follow the directions on the backoff light and you should be fine
I wouls suppect that you either have a short or a break in the wiring.
Go to the rear brake switch. You should have two wires going into it. One is hot and the other goes to the light. With a test light check for the hot wire. If no hot wire then you have a short from the breakers. If you do have a hot wire then depress the brake pedel and see if you have voltage going out the other wire. Follow the power back to the bulb.
You will have to do the same thing for the front switch to find the problem.
hope u will b helpfull
