Default Brake lights intermittent on Uly

Just brought home an '06 Ulysses last night. The brake lights work sometimes on the rear brake pedal, not on the front brake lever. When they do work on the rear, you can pull the front lever and release the rear pedal and they will stay on. There is a modulator that flashes them several times before coming on solid, is this factory or did the previous owner add it? I'm thinking if it's aftermarket then maybe that's the culprit.

Frustrating to have a new to me bike and problems already!

Wow, not a very active forum.

For the record, it was a modulator, a Kisan taillight modulator. I removed it, soldered the wires back together and viola! Brake lights from front and rear brake alike.
