Front brake lever not activating brake light.

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Just took my 2000 Trophy out of winter hibernation.
 Going through general checkout I noticed the front brake lever is not activating the brake light.
 Rear brake does activate the brake light so I know the light is good.
 Any help in where I should start my troubleshooting process would be greatly appreciated.
 Thanks.
 Brian

Re: Front brake lever not activating brake light.

pull the spade connectors off the switch and with the ignition on, short the metal parts of the two connectors together. this should make the light illuminate. if it does, then the switch is at fault, if it doesn't then the bulb or wiring is at fault, assuming you have already tested the rear brake lever operates the lamp, then I would expect the bulb is OK... 
new switches were available on Ebay when mine went faulty.regards Joan

Hi Brian,

 The switch at the lever needs to be cleaned. If you're lucky just the contacts where the wires plug onto it. They can get a bit of corrosion in there over the years. Spring is the worst since the corrosion inside the switch goes unchecked due to it not being used all winter. I think I took mine apart to clean it, but I think it wasn't meant to come apart - maybe a snap together plastic unit. I'll see if I can remember when I look at her later today. Sometimes you can get lucky by spraying some contact cleaner around the plunger and working it to get the stuff in around the contacts.
 

 Cheers,
 Glenn

switches are £2.50 on Ebay, is it worth cleaning and possibly not working when you stop in a hurry... a vehicle up your backside is not a happy situation.

I cleaned mine several years ago. Hasn't quit since. 2.50 GBP is really cheap. Here in Canada we get raped on pricing and it is hard to find a Triumph dealer worth going to. My parts have to come from either the UK or the USA. Either way, shipping and exchange rates are a motherf&#%er for us here.

Sorry Joan. I think my post had the wrong tone. I didn't mean to offend. Pricing and parts availability here make me think of fixing things first.

Re: Front brake lever not activating brake light.

Thanks for all the quick replies. I took the switch off last night and cleaned it up a bit. I was able to get the brake light to work. It definitely had some build up on the contacts. I'll clean it up some more tonight and mount it back on the bike.
 I should be good-to-go for inspection.
 Thanks again!

Glen, just thought id jump in and tell you what i have found to date (not that its on going) but when i picked a oem part i asked different triumph dealers in different countries for a price quote, the main reason i did this is because each triumph dealer i asked in different states of Australia, gave me all different prices, this wasnt including any sort of postage. So i thought lets check a few countries out and see how things sit. Australia was cheapest by a few $ (this was after currency exchange at the time) compared to Thailand (that surprised me) and New Zealand. The cheapest quote by a long shot was from bike shop in California USA. Andy was his name if he still works there? bike shop was ncy yamaha. if his postage rates to you are too high, you could look into a mail drop forwarder in a tax free state ie. Nevada. there is others of course, then have the freight forwarder offer you better postage rate to your country. i cant remember off hand how the UK part quote price sat at the time. Just of interest do oem parts prices vary much in the UK from different dealers.

Hi Angus,

 Thanks for investigating that. Yeah, we've been getting hooped forever by getting things brought in from out of country. Go to a Triumph dealer here and order a part and it come from Triumph USA. Postage from the UK is just as bad. That said, shipping anything from Canada to anywhere - in or out of Canada - is more expensive. Before we moved to the East coast last summer, we had always lived in a border town so almost everything we needed we ordered from the USA to be delivered to our USA mailbox. I did contact Sprint Manufacturing when I wanted the cam chain tensioner spring and they sent it for a lot less than their website said it would cost.
 

 Cheers,
 Glenn

Thanks Henk. Good detail in the pictures of the switch (toward the bottom of the page). Good idea, as well, about the magnets in the gloves.
