Try this, Loosen the two bolts that holds the front master cylinder onto the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If that doesn't extinguish the light, your front brake light switch is probably broken.

To change the switch, you'll have to open the right handlebar switch housing by removeing the two bolts that holds it together, take the throttle and idle cables loose and get the lower housing loose from the handlebar. The switch is held into the inner face of the housing by a single screw. Take the switch loose and desolder the two wires leading to it. Replace the old switch with a new one and solder the original wires to the new switch. Reassemble the throttle assembly and the switch housing. Check the throttle for proper operation. Make sure the throttle "snaps" shut when you release the throttle grip. Improper assembly or adjustment of the throttle cables can cause the loss of control of the motorcycle resulting in serious injury or death.

Good Luck
Steve

Why r my tail lights staying on my 1993 gmc Sierra


Are you sure it is the tail lights and not the brake lights? If the park lights are staying on, the front should be on as well in most cases. If it is the brake lights staying on, suspect a faulty brake light switch located at the brake pedal

Tail light stays on when motorcycle is turned off


A long time ago, Honda's had a parking lite, believe it or not. You would turn the key all the way past off and remove it to engage the tail lite. To just turn the bike off, take the key out at off if it comes out ok.

Tail light


The tail light which stays 'on' , is it the brake light or the normal light. (if it is powerfulthn its brake light & if it's dimmer thn its a normal light).
Remedy:- if it's brighter thn it is probabley the brake light switch which mayhave siezed or needs adjustment.
I have a feeling it is the brake light tht is staying lit all the time.

Tail lghts/brake lights


Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

Is it your tail lights or Brake lights? My 88 Couger had a brake switch that went bad and the Brake Lights stayed on.
