No brake lights help?

Hey whats up guys im having issues with my brakelights.. Cant get any power to my brake light switch. I have no clue were the fuse is.. The lights intermittently come on when ever they feel like it.. Yes i assume a connector is loose.. Or what not.. But which one?

I guess i should go more into detail no running or brake light.. Original owner put led micro tail light. I have checked for power going to the brake light switches and there is no power going to either... I checkes the switches themselves for continuity and when the brakes are depressed the circut is complete... The lights had been working but were flickering in and out i checked where the p/o cut and spliced to see if the connector. Was loose but it wasnt

Follow the wiring from under the tank and to the steering head, or maybe just pull the covers from that area

ALL the fuses are in the junction block under left side cover. all the connectors from the frame harness to the handlebar harness's are under left neck cover (and partially the tank)

also, there are connectors under the seat for the tail lights and brake lights

Thanks for the reply.. I should have read the box that says fuses.. Little update.. The original owner. Put a slim led light from dbc i guess he bottomed the bike out a few times.. Causing the leds to brake loose off the chip board.. Ordered some new 12 volt. Leds waiting for them to come in so i can re solder them to the board.id have gone to radio shack but there is none in existance in my town..
