I was having a nightmare with getting my front brake to light up the brake light through the current loom. So I have attempted to run new wires straight from the front switch and link it in with the rear brake switch which works fine. Both the brakes are hydraulic switch types and the back brake would light up the brake light fine. So I run the wires back from the front one and attached them at the same points the back ones attach. (Kinda shown in the picture).
The back brake still lights it up fine but the front one with the new wires only does it very intermittently and sometimes wont do it at all. The problems I thought it may be so far is that the
- switch isnt working properly and I would have to re-bleed the front brakes?
- The type of wire I used may be to weak or have to much resistance? (Dunno what kinda wire it is, old stuff laying round the garage, kinda thin)
- The bike isnt generating enough power/electricity? Probly not as the back one still works fine?
- Could be due to the weak joining it did where the new front wire meet the back wires (I just stripped it down to the wire and did some wrapping and twisting and then wrapped up in electrical tape
