Brake Light Failure
Ok. So obviously I should go get this checked out but reaching out in case someone has experienced this.
My brake failure light is on and gently flashing all the time since I scraped my rear brake line caliper bolt. The light used to come on in heavy rain recently anyways.
I scraped the bolt while pulling over. Didn't notice a problem. Then the brake failure light came on. So I pulled over again. Bolt was leaking brake fluid. I tightened the bolt and it stopped leaking. The brake reservoir is still full for the rear brake. But occasionally and frequently the brake failure light will start flashing rapidly and the rear brake will stop working completely. I turn the bike on and off and it's back to gently flashing but the brake is weak as always.
Is there any simple fix that might bring this back into full functionality. A valve I can open or something?
