The rear brake stoplight switch will have un-adjusted itself. Find the stoplight switch which is near the rear brake fluid reservoir just aft of the right hand side panel. The black plastic adjustment nut is on top of the switch body. Turn the nut clockwise until the brake light comes on when the footbrake pedal is depressed.

No. the brake master cylinder is for the brake calipers on the wheels. if your brake light is not working and the bulbs are ok. check the fuse box under the seat. or the connectors to the brake light assembly.

On older bikes the starter switch can start sticking and not fully return. The headlamp is commonly cut during starting to allow more power to the starter motor. But if the start switch does not fully return it can keep the headlamp off. Try juggling the switch with the bike running and see if the lights return. If they do then its time to take the switch apart and give it good cleaning and lubrication with electrolytic grease.

Some Yamahas are designed to shut off the headlight while cranking starter to conserve battery power.
I'm not sure your XJ was built that way...but other models have the same problem.......
The starter button has a set of contacts for headlight, and a set of contacts for starter circuit.....as you push in the button, the headlight contacts open first...then as you push further the starter circuit contacts close to crank the starter. If the button does not fully release after starting the headlight stays off. So try WD40 around the button edges and work the button in and out several times with key off, then see if your headlight works now.
