I just bought an 86' VT700C and it runs great. However, the brake light doesn't work. I'm sure the brake light switch is just fine, as the indicator on my dash lights up whenever I depress either the front or the back brake. The only issue is that the brake light in the rear does nothing.
I tried switching the bulb expecting that it could be that one of the filaments that is bum, but both filaments were just fine and the brand new bulb worked the same.
I was wondering if anybody might have a suggestion on how to fix this? The only theory I have come up with, is that there is a blown fuse and for some reason this locks the brake light either always on, or always off (the tail light seems unusually bright to me, but I could be wrong)?
