    Rear Brake Light - Triumph Speed Triple 1050 - 2007

    Rear Brake Light - Triumph Speed Triple 1050 - 2007

    Run into a problem, the rear brake light is on, but is not illuminating brighter with the foot brake pedal, front hand brake lights up correctly. Its not roadworthy to ride. :-(

    I've checked the fuses in position 3 - indicators, brake light and horn - its OK

    The horn was sounding but very low sound. So I checked the battery and it was run down so I'm currently charging to fix the low horn level. The rear brake light is LED so its not a bulb. I have a workshop manual but haven't found info I need. Any suggestions would be appreciated! ;-)

    the sensor spring mechanism at the rear brake pedal and the master cylinder needs to be adjusted. there is a plastic nut that allows you to adjust the tension on the spring that actuates the brake light sensor and thus illuminates your rear light if the tension on the spring is loose the brakes work but the sensor is not getting triggered and thus your light is just a running light. happened to me once... hope it helps

    Had problems with my rear brake switch for many years, vehicle test time it wouldn't work, go for a ride out and it would decide to stay on,
    poor design,changed the rear brake banjo bolt for one with a pressure switch, end of problem, 7 years faultless.

    Mine flakes out from time to time, road grime seems to be the culprit. I flush it out with WD-40 and cycle it manually about a dozen or so times and it resumes operation.

    Yep, used to do the same, then the crud got on the switch contacts, stripped and cleaned it, then did 12mm rear master and switch at the same time, now have a rear brake pedal that achieves more than turn the light on
    could never understand how it gave a reading on the brake rollers and did nothing !
    Think the OP needs to remove the switch wires and join em up, if the brake lamp lights then go from there,
    follow it thru with a meter.
