    Remove the light bulb and disconnect at switch then ohm check that wire to ground. (Battery negative cable should be disconnected for ohms checks so no smokee da meter fuse while fiddling).

    Inspect bulb and socket because vibration ain't kind to either.

    Ohm brake light switch contacts to the grounded shell with wires disconnected and brake applied to ensure switch doesn't internally short to ground.

    yulp.

    easiest thing i was gonna do was jump the switch, just to rule it out. but im pretty positive the orange with white line wire is shorted out somewhere. i have a running light as of now, ill find time this weekend to trace down the wire. its all tucked in the oil tank under the seat.

    no brake light wont stop me from scootin around

    No sir a light won't stop you but a dead battery or a fire sure will...... Good luck...
