Hello all. Relatively new to the forums, and to riding a CX500. I'd rank myself as a novice when it comes to mechanical work - I'm OK with oil/filter & spark plug changes and basic adjustments, but am not well versed in much else. That being said, when I was changing the spark plugs the other day I also re-adjusted the brakes when I noticed that the rear brake light was not going on (before the adjustment as well) after adjusting the brake peddle I started to adjust the brake light sensor and I have turned it clockwise to almost the maximum I can go without the lock nut coming off the sensor adjuster. I've also swapped bulbs with the front brake to test the bulbs themselves, and the bulbs work fine. Are there any other tricks or suggestions a novice could look to try to fix the problem before I cart it off to the mechanic? Thanx in advance for your time.
