Is rear brake supposed to light up brake lights?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 
                  Just found out that my rear brake doesn't light up the tail light.  Front brake is fine and does light up the brake light.  Is this normal? How do you suggest I remedy this? 
 
Thanks in advance !

Dumb question, but, are you pressing your rear foot lever down hard/far enough when you're checking for functionality?

I had the same issue, turns out the rear brake light switch needed adjusting. The procedure is outlined in the owners manual. Ive heard of other guys also having sticky switches, seems to be a common issue area.

I think so.  The bike was on the side stand and I used my right hand to press down on it all the way.  It didn't light up the tail light at all.  Front brake did however.
