Try this first. Loosen the bolts that hold the front master cylinder onto the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this doesn't turn the brake light off, either the switch in the right handlebar switch housing is bad or the pressure switch in the metal brake line under the bike is bad.

good luck

Battery died and blew both fuel and ignition fuses, replaced them both and put in another battery , soon as connect battery the fuel fuse keeps blowing,, Suzuki Boulevard

Hi, Mark you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Need diagram for f150 1976 wire attachment to break pedal, replaced slave cylinder abad now lights are on constant.

Mcmom, Either your brake pedal is not coming up far enough to the brake switch, or the brake switch is faulty. You may still have air in brake system not allowing pedal to come up high enough to contact switch, pull brake pedal all the way up and have a second person see if brake lights go off.
Links below to show brake switch location and show how brake pedal arm should come all the way up to turn off brake lights.

Why do my brake lights stays on my 08 caddillac dtsdts even when I'm not hitting the brakes?

If all three brake lights are on, I'd say the problem is in the switch by the brake pedal. Take the cover off below the steering wheel and inspect the brake pedal and the switch. It may be as easy as spraying some silicone lube on the actuator. Try to do a search on this forum for brake light switch.

What is involved in changing front brake pads on an 08 Streetglide

I haven't done a brake job on a bike this new but it shouldn't be any different than any other bike. Simply take the two bolts that hold the caliper on out. Remove the old shoes. Use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers and squeeze the piston back into the caliper all the way. Install the new pads and put the caliper back in place. Replace the two bolts and torque them to 25 Foot pounds. Squeeze the brake lever until you have a good firm brake.

Good Luck
