Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 883C Sportster Custom
There is a tab on your front brake lever that operates the front brake light switch. First make sure your front master cylinder is set correctly to the right handlebar switch housing. Loosen the two bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder onto the handlebars and slide it back against the right handlebar housing all the way. Tighten the bolts and check the rear brake light operation.
If this doesn't fix the problem, you probably have a bad front brake light switch in the right handlebar switch housing. This will require that you take the bolts out of the housing,split it and remove the throttle assembly, unsolder the switch, install a new switch, and resolder the wires to the new switch. If you're not comfortable with wires and a soldering iron, you need to take it to a shop to have this job done. If you wish to attempt the repair yourself, repost and I'll help as much as I can.
