You sure one of the brake sensors isn't being pressed, or stuck, and the brake light is actually on, you just think it's the running light? Seen that happen before and it was a R brake light switch that was hung up

alright,,checked the rear brake switch, fuses, all look good. Is there a front brake switch? Rear brake light is on but not getting it to switch when pressing front or rear levers. Any ideas?

the front brake switch is built in to the housing that holds the brake lever. it is a small plunger that is pushed in when the lever is pulled.

cool thxs! It was the front brake housing, its cracked and looks like it has a broken piece. There are 2 wires going to it. I removed one wire and its now working the rear brake but not the front brake lever. lol Thxs for the help fellas. Gonna search on ebay for the front brake assembly now.

That sounds like a loose wire to me... I'd recheck all those wires and their connections in that area...
