Can anybody help. Bit of a weird one. When the ignition is on, engine off, the front break light switch operates the rear break light. The rear break light switch does the same. Great, no probs. When I start the bike. The rear break light switch still operates the break light, but the front break light switch no longer lights up the break light. Confused?? I am!! . Any ideas anybody??

Pull the wires off the switch and bridge them. If the light then works with the engine running it's obviously a switch issue, probably being effected by vibration.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, took off the switch. It is not a sealed unit, so you could see the green corrosion inside & the green connectors. Lovely. Replaced the switch & its sorted.
