1500 Front Brake Micro Switch
While riding today I noticed that my 'Cruise Set' wasn't working and when I got home I found that the brake lights were also lit all the time. I disconnected the rear brake switch first but the lights stayed on. When I disconnected the front brake lever wires the lights went out so I took off the micro switch block which I assume is faulty.
I've attached a picture which shows that one of the micro switches is shorter than the other. The one sticking out the farthest clicks nicely on and off but the short one does not. The short one pushes in on it's spring but does not click. Am I right in assuming this is the fault or is the micro switch supposed to act in this way?
