rear brake sticking

Recommended Posts

My rear brake pedal is sticking so much so the tail light remains fully illuminated. Is this a problem with a gunky brake cylinder needing a strip and clean? When I put the bike on the centre stand the wheel is spinning ok so the pads are not gettnig stuck. Any ideas on how i can locate the rear brake switch (suzuli dl 650/ sv 650) and what it looks like?

its the switch that needs adjusting if the wheels not dragging,look around the brake pedal it should have a thread with a big plastic nut, just loosen it till the light goes out.

the pedal is sticking. If I flick it upwards like in a gear change the tail light goes back to normal illumination

1st prize goes to madsod. It just needed a good clean and some grease spray. Thanks for the illustrations.
