SOURCE: 82 harley sportster brake light
try starting with the bulb. brake light bulbs are dual fillament, meaning you have 2 bulbs in one basicly. if your brake side has blown then the tail light could still work. Or try checking the brake light switches, one on front brake and one on rear brake pedal. to test switches disconect wires and join them together with small bit of wire or paper clip. this will make the light come on meaning you have a bum switch.
if you have only been using the rear brake, that has an adjustable switch, may need to mess with it

This used to be a common problem back in the days of generators but I've not heard of this since Harley went to the alternator systems in 1970. It is unusual to say the least.
The first thing I'd do is have my battery tested. This is simply good procedure anytime you are experiencing a charging system problem.
Next, check the output of your alternator. To do this, you'll need a DVOM, digital volt ohm meter. Unplug the voltage regular at the front of your engine case close to the oil filter. Now, put your DVOM into "Voltage", "AC", Range 50 volts or better. Now, with the engine running, put one lead from the meter to one of the pins in the plug in the engine case. Put the other lead in the other pin. Rev the engine up to about 2000-2500 RPM. You should read at least 30 Volts AC. You must have the meter in the AC positon because an alternator puts out alternating current. Your regulator converts it to Direct Current voltage for the charging the battery and reduces the voltage. If you are reading thirty volts or better, I would suspect the Voltage Regulator is your problem.

Usually the oil tanks hold three quarts of oil and the transmission holds 20-24 ounces. Check the engine oil with the bike on the stand. The dip stick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "Full Hot" and the lower mark is "Full Cold". Maintain the oil level between these two marks. Do not overfill.
The transmission has also has a dipstick to check the level with. It's a plug that takes a 3/8" hex key to remove. Check the level with the bike standing straight up. Level should be between the end of the dipstick and the mark.
