Hey, Jeff - you ever git around to operating on your scoot for the constant-on brake light problem? KKs are in order for Mark on this one. I replaced the brake light relay in the electrical box this morning and sure enuf, Mr. Neblett had nailed it. Brake light problem went away, and they turn off now, just as they should.
Mark asked to let him know if the solution worked, so I PM'd him a bit ago and thanked him for the diagnosis.
BTW - the electrical box isn't all that hard to git to (remove both upper fairings, mirrors, wind wings, stingray, seat bracket and gas tank). Remove just the smaller, lower compartment of the electrical condo (held in place by four philips screws); pull the fuse/relay bundle holder out and twist the bundles over for access to the keeper block that holds the motronic relay alongside the brake light relay. Bit of a pain removing the relay, unless you have 4 hands the size of Barbie's; butt you can see the lever at the bottom of the keeper that'll release the block. With the block released off the holder, you can remove the brake light relay by spreading apart the lug-grippers. Pull the relay spades out and insert the new one - the lugs will snap into the grippers; slide the keeper block back onto the fuse/relay bundle holder; and insert the holder back into it's runner - sliding everythang to the back wall of the compartment. Line up the seal-groove of the cover and tighten down the four screws. BTW - there wuz a coupla dead mini-bugs and some dust/debris inside our compartment, so I blew thangs clean with some canned air.
And for reference, if you have the printed version of the shop manual, section 61-10 thru about 61-14/15 contains instructions for opening the electrical box, as well as a ghost picture of the relay locations.
Good luck, Jeff - if you haven't already done the fix.
