Break light stuck on

PostAuthor: CharCafe920xv » Mon Mar 20, 2017 9:24 pm

I've got my new seat hooked up to my bike, all my rear lights are in place, the turn signals light up and flash when prompted, but my break light is stuck on. I turn on the bike and my breaks light up without me breaking, and I can't figure out where I messed up the wiring. Can anyone direct me to the switches that control the break lights and help me get back on the road again?
I did not touch any wiring other than the break light chords and turn signal chords, and even then I only detached them at their break points under the seat. To get the turn signals back I just re-plugged them in. I did the same with the break lights, but now they don't flash or change brightness.
Please help!

IIRC - there is a switch on the right [front brake] lever. # 17 ---> ... itch-lever
