    The rear brake peddle turns the tail light on.

    The front brake lever does not make the tail light come on

    I check the bulbs they are good. The front brake lever with still not turn the tail light brighter

    I think the problem is the electric module connected to the handle bars under the brake lever. Were the wires connect. I took it off and it has a button that compress when you apply the front brake level. The button is rattling a round. What do you think.

    If you have already checked the bulbs and you are sure that they are good, then you need to check the connections to the bulb as it could be a broken of burned wire. If the connections are also fine then its definetly the bulb that needs to be replaced.

    Alright, then you can replace the button. If that does not get replaced then you need to replace the complete electric module.

Rear tail light stays on all the time. Is this normal (new bike for me), meaning is the light supposed to come on BRIGHTER when the brakes are applied and that function is broken, or is the light supposed...


Good news. Mine did the same thing. There should be a running light and a "brake" light all within the same bulb. Check the switches on the front brake lever and the rear brake lever. Both actuate the rear brake light. You can usually do a quick test by pushing the brake lever on the handlebar all the way out and see if the light goes out. This is what my problem was. If you poke around you will see a switch on both brake levers. Make sure they are pressed in when your not pulling (handle bar lever) and pushing (right foot brake lever). You will see a switch with a little rod on it, when you press the foot break/pull the hand brake, it will come all the way out. That is when the light comes on. Hope this helps.

Rear brake light does not work tail light does need to know were brake light switch is?


Your bike is equipped with two brake light switch, either of which should cause the brake light to come on when activated. The front brake light switch is in the right handlebar switch housing and it has an activation pin that sticks out of the switch housing towards the front brake lever. A tab on the front brake lever operates the switch. When the tab on the lever moves away from the switch housing, the pin comes out of the switch housing and turns on the brake light. The rear brake light switch is a pressure switch located in the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder and goes towards the rear brake. Just follow the metal from the rear master cylinder towards the rear brake and you'll find it.

Good Luck

I have a yamaha r1 2007 and the brake light doesn't light up when you pull the brake lever. What could the problems be?


Does it work fine with rear brake just not with front? If so...inspect the brake switch on the front lever...might be loose so the lever can't press against it.....or remove lever and inspect how the switch is activated (lever presses against it or moves away) and try moving the plunger by hand.
Could also be a loose connection on wiring to the switch.

If neither front or rear work...check fuses, light socket and wiring to the light.
Wiring damage under the seat is common on many models of bikes...the wires get moved then pinched under the seat.

Break tail light stays on all the time? where is the swich


There are two switches. One is on the right handlebar switch housing. It is operated by the front brake lever. When you pull the lever, it pivots on a pin which causes the backside of the lever to move forward. There is a tap on the backside of the lever that presses the front brake light switch turning the brake light off. When you pull the lever, the tab moves forward and releases the switch turning the light on. Now, if the light stays on, you can loosen the bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder onto the handlebars, slide the front brake master cylinder down as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this doesn't turn the light off, this switch my be bad or the lever has too much wear in it and should be replaced.

There is another switch in the system for the rear brake. Follow the metal brake line coming out of the rear of the rear brake master cylinder and you'll come to a "Tee fitting" with a pressure switch in it. This is the rear brake light switch. Usually when it goes bad, the brake lights will not come on, not light up all time. But, then I'm pretty sure that I haven't seen everytig. Test the switch for contineuity using an obm meter.

Good Luck
