Does it work fine with rear brake just not with front? If so...inspect the brake switch on the front lever...might be loose so the lever can't press against it.....or remove lever and inspect how the switch is activated (lever presses against it or moves away) and try moving the plunger by hand.
Could also be a loose connection on wiring to the switch.

If neither front or rear work...check fuses, light socket and wiring to the light.
Wiring damage under the seat is common on many models of bikes...the wires get moved then pinched under the seat.

SOURCE: My yamaha dt 125 have a nois problem in clutch

It is because the clutch plates are rattling due to wear and tear. The plates wear with mileage and are cheap enough to buy and easy to fit. Buy a manual and follow the instructions. These books also contain the most common faults and how to fix them.

Rear brake lever is sticking making my brek lights stay on


It might be just an adjustment for the switch that is connected to the foot brake. There is also a spring that should be pulling up on the lever when you take your foot off of it.

Rear brake lever sticking making my brek lights stay on


Hi, There should be a spring that pulls the lever back up when you remove your foot. It might be missing or broken. You might also have a mal adjusted switch that activates the brake light. it should be located near the pivot bolt for the brake lever. There is also a switch on the front brake lever. That might need adjusting or replacement.

I am trying to bleed brakes on my yamaha 600 diversion 1998 and i cant get the air out of pipes i have been at it for hours and hours i have tried various different ways but to no avail is there a knack...


don't open more than one bleeder at a time. Oh, and pumping the brake handle doesn't do anything. It doesn't build up pressure like a car does. What you what you want to do is squeeze the brake lever, open the bleeder to are doing at the time (master cylinder first, right next to the brake lever) while you are holding the brake lever in, close the bleeder. When you let go of the brake lever, it will **** in fluid from the reservoir. Then squeeze the lever again, open the bleeder, close the bleeder, then let go again. Keep doing this until you don' see any more air bubbles come out and MAKE SURE you do not let the reservoir go empty. If it goes empty, you just put air in there and have to do it again.

Once you get down to the calipers, try to do it fairly quickly. The air bubbles move slow through the lines, but once the fluid stops moving, they will slowly start moving back up. If you let go of the lever with the bleeder open, it will **** fluid from where ever it can get it, so it will pull from the reservoir AND the hose you are trying to bleed, so it will just **** the air bubbles back higher in the line.

Brake light does not work??


Pull out a multimeter/dmm/voltage gauge
place on the two terminals of the brake light (after removing it)
pull the front brake lever or push the brake pedal both should cause 12V to appear at the terminals
if 12V does appear at the terminals in both cases the brake light is bad.
if the rear lever does not cause it to trip check to make sure the switch (which should be directly attached to the brake pedal/lever) is working by putting the multimeter/dmm across its terminals and testing for continuity when you activate it.
if the front lever does not activate it check to make sure the switch on the lever is working in the same fashion as the rear one.

I replace brake lever and now rear brake light wont go off on 2003 yamaha road star


adjust the light switch. It is located near the RH footpeg and is connected by a small spring to the brake lever. You may have forgotten to re=connect it when the replacement lever was installed.

My brake light stays on and will not go off?


there is one switch under the front brake lever, and another pulled by a spring off the rear brake lever, unhook the wires from each and see which switch is staying on.
It is most often the rear switch that causes trouble and just may need a slight adjustment

When I depress the front brake lever I have no brake light but when I use the foot pedal it lights up. 2005 yamaha 650 classic. is this an easy fix


Front brake light switch is likely bad. Look on the underside of the lever for the switch & connections. If you connect the terminals and the light comes on, it is your switch.

My brake and rear lights are not functioning on my 2000 r6. what are some troubleshooting tips and how to i change out or check the lights and where would i find a fuse or switch for them


The switches for brakes, one on front brake lever, one on rear brake lever, and as for changing bulbs look at the rear light to see which type of screwdriver is required, undo the screws gently pull of the lens and check/replace bulbs. Check the bulbs first as this maybe the problem, As for the fuses they will probably be close to the battery which is normally under the seat.
