Default Rear brake light

When I use the rear brake light comes omn every time. When I use front only 1 out of 3 or 4. Checked connection but not sure if I am overlooking an obvious flaw.

It's most likely the switch (Victory part no. 4110242) - You can tell because that's the only thing that could be wrong. A blown fuse is out of the question since it works sometimes.

It could also be a weak contact of the wire that runs from the switch, which you could test with a voltmeter. However, most likely, it's the switch.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
