Brake lights

Post by weathersh09 » Mon Aug 09, 2010 5:32 am

Ever since the new front master cylinder res was installed, the brake lights intermit will not activate with the front brakes squeezed? I know the wiring is a little old, but its starting to get on my nerves. Any ideas out there?

The brake lights are activated by a small micro switch located at the bottom of the lever assembly. Make sure you didn't jostle the two wires on that switch. Also you should hear a small click when you move the break lever if the switch is adjusted correctly and functional. If you just changed the reservoir then the adjustment of that switch shouldn't have changed. If you loosened the grip assembly or took it off then you might have moved it.
