Re: Rear Brake Light Remains Bright, Even After Letting Off Brakes

I just checked the switches motogpfan is referring to. I'm not very mechanical-smart, but what I've discovered is that when the front brake lever is pulled, you can hear a subtle click, and when the lever is released another click can be heard. (Must listen within a quiet environment.)

The problem (I discovered) is when the front lever is pulled, a click can be heard, but when released, the click cannot be heard and the tail light remains bright. However, when I jiggle the two wires leading out from the little plastic housing behind the front brake lever (where the "click" seems to originate), the second click is heard and the bright light returns to normal (running light). It looks like a mechanical position-switch device (but not sure). What can cause this sticking?

Thanks for your help!

John
