There are three most likely cases. The sensor/switch may be bad, it may be stuck, or the spring that actuates the sensor/switch may be broken when the rear brake is applied. In my case, the spring was broken.

2005 busa no brake lights all other lights work

Hi, Ashley before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Gsxr 600 2008 brake light

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

There are only 2 switches involve to activate the brake light. Disconnecting both one a time would help you determine which is faulty if ever. In some instances, it would be a pinched wire pair going to the front brake lever.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Check the wiring connections to the front brake switch. If all OK, then it could be the switch.
