Here's the Sportsterpedia Turn Signal & Brake Lights section:

Quote:
This switch is often damaged (causing the brake light to stay ON) by not paying close attention to the following caution from the manual regarding disassembly & assembly of the master cylinder or brake lever or right switch housing:

Do not remove or install the master cylinder assembly and do not remove the switch housing assembly without first placing a 5/32in (4mm) thick cardboard insert between the brake lever and lever bracket. Removing the assembly without the insert in place may result in damage to the rubber boot and plunger of the front stoplight switch.
And here's the image in the SP which illustrates the front to rear parallel wiring:


It should not have been necessary to cut any wires or add any...

I'm glad you got it working -----
