Default '16 Vegas Rear Brake light switch

Gentlemen!

I've been away a while, I know. Hopefully I'm still in the good graces of the other wrenches here. Anyway, rear brake application on Lacy's Vegas has been resulting in the brake light staying stuck on. Started last fall after quite a lot of riding through heavy rain on our Colorado Rockies trip. I'm sure it's the switch, but I can't seem to find the damn thing. One of you fellas please direct me, so I can feel stupid later? Appreciate it.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

I'd take the switch off and clean/dry it. you can get a Vegas (2012) manual here https://sourceforge.net/projects/servicemanual/files/

yeah, I found the damn thing. And feel appropriately stupid for not finding it right away earlier. @RoteBaron I pulled the connections and cleaned them up, but no avail. I'll have to pull it out and clean it, and I need some DOT4 to do that job. Maybe Tuesday. I'll report back. Thanks for the responses.

Like I said on other post $85 bucks now cause indian uses it. Take old one to napa or HD used then on early models. Either way you'll save money by going to one of them

I'm not entirely certain what part you're talking about VJ. But I ordered the part from cheapcycleparts.com, where it was $17.84. From Ma Vic it was $20.99. I saved maybe 1.50 after shipping.
