Front brake light circuit
I have tried searching the archives for previous postings about the front brake light switch not working. I was wondering if anyone found or knows of a place were one of the front brake light wires gets broken. My switch is good, I have continuity from the switch all the way to the bulkhead connector. I going to have to take the gas tank off before I can look any further. The brake light still works from the rear brake pedal. I'm thinking of bypassing the bulkhead connector and making a new connector for the two wires for the front brake light because at times I have found that if I unplug the bulk head connector and put it back together, the light will work from the front brake light switch again temporarily. I know I saw somewhere on here that someone had encountered a broken wire in this circuit but I CANNOT find this thread. I'm an automotive technician and usually when a vehicle of one type has a fault, the cause for every other subsequent vehicle is the same for the same problem. Eventually I will remove the tank, but not until fall or winter because I love riding my bike.
