i just got my first bike, its an 81 cx500. and the owner i bought it from said that the previous owner had problems with the tail light not working so he wired a switch and connected it directly to the battery, so now the tail light turns on only with the switch and not when the bike is turned on. i got a new ignition switch and it still has the same problem. Also the brake lights dont light up when holding the front brake, but they work when pressing down on the rear brake. i discovered that after taking out the wire and switch, the brake lights work for the front brake. Does this sound like a wiring problem near the ignition?



Thank You

Wait, the power to the light needs to come from the ignition ON switch..
