Proud new owner of a '03 600rr, and new to this forum. I was hoping someone could help me out with a break light issue:

When I use my rear (foot) brake, the brake light responds and lights up correctly, but every time I use my front (hand) brake, the brake light DOES NOT light up? Is there a simple fix or do I need to take it in to the shop?

Thanks!

does the front brake click when you pull it.

that clicking is the brake switch coming on.

there should a small square box under the master cylinder with 2 wires going into it.

that is your brake switch.

if you pull those two wires off and connect the terminals of the wires together the brake light should come on.

when i looked at my brake switch the two wires weren't even connected! so i connected them to the brake switch and now the brake lights stay on all the time?

if i disconnect them, then only the foot brake makes the break light light up, but the handbrake doesn't???

any more suggestions?

My brake light is non responsive to hand brake?!

I noticed this morning on my way to work that my break light doesn't light up with i press my hand brake, but it does when i press my foot brake.

I checked out my break switch, and the two wires were completely disconnected from the break switch. So when i re-attached them, the break light is continuously on, regardless of whether or not i'm pressing the breaks............then i switched around the connection the brake light goes off, but doesn't react to me pressing the breaks??

any guidance on a quick fix?

thanks

sounds like they unhooked it because there is a short in the switch.
all that switch does is complete the circuit.
sounds like you need a new switch

i have this same problem but in reverse, mine lights up fine with the hand brake but nothing for the foot brake... is there a switch for the back as well?
