Rear break light
« on: June 27, 2018, 12:57:38 PM »
Hi, I have a problem with the rear brake light.
If I brake with the rear, the light (stop) does not turn on while with the front brake yes
What should I check?
Thanks

Check the rear brake switch.

The rear brake switch is a really easy replacement. You’ll find it on the right hand side just above the foot brake lever, also check the spring is connected to the lever.
