I have seen a thread on here about the inop brake light situation when pulling front hand lever.

I have so far been unable to find that thread. Can anyone please tell me what the fix is for that????

Thanks in advance for the help!

Front Handle Brake lite

Brian, the switch for the brake light is a warranty item, not sure if it was a recall item or not, may want to ask others. I had the switch go bad and took it into the dealer and had it replaced. :sw1:

No need to replace the switch.............both my 1500 and 1800 have had this happen.
All you need is a squirt of contact cleaner (use the kind that's safe for plastic) into the "inspection hole" and it will work fine.

Any residue on the contacts of this switch will cause it to not work properly. I've gotten into the habit of squirting a little contat cleaner into each of these switches (4 total.......2 on right and 2 on left handlebar levers) once a year and have no further problems.
