    Brake lights/front brake lever

    My front brake lever isnt activating my brake lights, and thus not shutting off the cruise control (rear brake control works fine). Is the lever bad or is that some sorta fuse? 2014 Street Glide

    Thanks

    Did you change the levers ? If you did. And did not do it properly you broke the switch inside the switch housing.

    Could be contaminated/ degraded brake fluid. I went through a similar drama on a LowRider a while back, a complete flush and change sorted it. I now change brake and clutch fluids every two years for peace of mind with no problems since.

    Turns out the lever separated from grip where but to activate is. Just readjusted and that fixed problem

    Guarantee that small switch is broke under your brake lever. Easy fix. I think like 20 bucks or so.
