CBR 125 R Solid Red Brake Light


Recommended Posts

Update: Fixed :) The rear brake switch had a frayed wire. Thanks for the help!

Hey all.

I'm having some issues with my Motorbike and was hoping some of you might be able to help me out.

My Motorbike seems to be breaking a lot recently. First it was a dead battery, then it was a problem with power (or more specifically no power at all) - turned out my 30a main fuse had blown. After replacing that my power burst back into life. I now have two more problems:

1. My rear brake light is showing solid red (bright). Pressing the brake lever and handle has no effect on the light.

2. There seems to be a power drain. When I have the engine running I am only producing 11.5 volts, the recommended vaults needed to charge the battery should be 13+ so I am losing power with the engine running. I suspect this might be tied in with issue N1.

Any idea what could be causing these issues? any help would be greatly appreciated

Not sure if this is an indicator of a fault or not, I checked the switches and also unpluged the rear switch, when I unplug the rear switch the light dims again. The front lever does not seem to register with or without the rear switch unplugged.

Disconnected the front switch, light continues to stay on (bright).
