I pulled they are pretty stuck. will try again. I have the entire braking system off but am learning the hard way that brake fluid gets all over, Ive been wiping it up as fast as possible. should have bought a mity vac and sucked out the fluid i guess.

That brake light switch doesn't look OE. The terminals should be small flat pins sticking out of the end of the switch.
Soldering is a must if you own and plan to work on an old motorcycle.

Definitely. I don't even know what tools are needed. I've always just crimped on connectors.

Soldering gun, sand paper, flux, solder. two main ways..clean wire ends..wipe some flux on..put wires..twisting in tight spiral..heat connection apply solder..it melts covering the connection. Practice first on some wires on a bench until you get the hang of it.

Some like to tin the wires first..cover with solder..then put together and reheat with more solder. Also good for sticking a wire into a hole to attach.

Do a goggle search on soldering wires too. I use heat shrink over the splice, have to put it over the wire first and slide it back away from the heat of the solder splice area.
