Problem: On certain motorcycles, the proximity of the rear brake lamp switch to the exhaust system may cause the switch to overheat, possibly affecting brake lamp function and/or causing a brake fluid leak through the switch, either of which could cause a crash.
Correction: Dealers will replace the rear brake lamp switch with an updated version.

  1. Thats because the  mechanic probably works on a flat rate and tried to cut corners by not bleeding the brakes after installing the new switch. Now they should be paying you for your time! good luck with that one!

  2. Had my switch changed out today (recall 0145) but it has also changed the feel of my rear brake. Don’t like it. It no longer has a stiff feel, it is now week and almost doesn’t stop the bike. I’ll be back at the dealer tomorrow. Sucks.
