cbr 929 brake light stays on

just got my 2001 cbr 929 back together after complete rebuild. Everything works, except brake light is stuck on. Stock tail light, Tech G rearsets with pressure switch, new adjustable levers. I did have to rewire the plugs that connect to bulb sockets in tail light, but followed wiring diagram. Tried disconnecting rear brake pressure switch - brake light still on. Tried also disconnecting front brake switch - brake light still on when key is turned. This would seem to suggest a short somewhere, but don't know where to start. Wiring harness seems in good shape. If I mixed up the tail light and brake light leads in the connector, could that cause the problem? According to diagram, middle pin is ground, and outer 2 are tail and brake. Both filaments are lit.

If the lights are on with the switches disconnected, then I would guess that the wiring at the bulb isn't correct.

Re: cbr 929 brake light stays on

Can you turn the lights off on a 929? if so dose 1 or both go off with the main lights? guess you could pull the fuse to get the same effect.

other posibility is a short at either of the switches.

Re: cbr 929 brake light stays on

vfrman, you were right! the wiring diagram showed the ground as center pin. when I checked the voltage at connector found that ground should be right pin. rearranged accordingly and voila, every works!
