The brake lights get their power from the "lights" fuse.

Find the rear brake master cylinder. There's a metal line that comes out of the cylinder and goes towards the rear wheel. Follow this line and you'll come to a tee fitting with a pressure switch screwed into it. Check to make sure the wires are firmly attached to the switch. Use a test light and check for voltage to to the orange/white wire with the ignition switch in the ON position. If no voltage, you'll have to trace the wire back to it's source.

If you have voltage there, jumper across the switch with all the wires attached and see if the brake light shines. If not, you've got a problem with the wiring going back to the brake light

Good Luck

I have a 2009 harley sportster 1200c can i change the derby cover with out removing the oil

Yes, although I don't work on the later model bikes, I do believe you can do this because you have to take the derby cover off to adjust the clutch and you don't have to drain the oil to do that.

Good Luck

My 2006 1200c gets alot of oil in the air filter but im told there was no umbrella valves deigned in this model is this true

Since there is no "center section" to the rocker boxes, there is umbrella valve in there. There is a "breather" in there however. Now, whether or not it will cause excessive oil to get into the air filter, I don't know. I don't work on models as new as this. It's simple enough to put the front rocker box and check. Take a look here.

Good Luck
