Brake light Q. 2010 FE450

Bought this bike last week. My tail light works, which I refer to as a running light, but I cannot get any sort of brake light to actuate. I pulled the seat and noticed that there are three wires that come from the rear light to the area of the fuse box. I'll post a photo of them. I'm not certain if I'm missing something or if I have a problem with a switch or an actuator somewhere. I've done as much searching on the forums as my brain can possibly take and now I'm looking for some guidance.

For reference, my bike is a US model and has the switch for the horn, but no horn. It also has functioning headlights, high beam and low beam as well as the functioning tail light.

Is there a microswitch or actuator switch behind the foot brake? Behind the handbrake? Or am I just missing something altogether. Have a look at the photos and you'll also see a couple of wires that look like plug and play into something. I'm guessing it's the enduro kit.

I checked the fuse, which I believe is fuse number 3 or 4 for the brake lights. Both of them work.

Thoughts? Thanks!

Check for a couple of wires leading from the banjo bolt on the rear brake master cylinder. If they are there, you have the brake switch but maybe there is a broken wire in the harness. If there are no wires on the banjo bolt, then you will need to add a switch like this one:

Same goes for the front brake lever.

I had a similar problem on my 2010 570. The wires coming from the rear brake were se severed. They run behind the black mud guard. At least mine did. One of those wires in your pgots is for a liscence plate light.

The FE450 does not come with brake switches. If you want the brake light to work, you have to install hydraulic banjo bolts and wire them up - one side to 12V and the other to unused of the 3 wires in the connector.

If you need any help with any wiring or ideas feel free to pm me and I will forward my email address. Tons of experience and a electrical tech. I have made many harness's and streetafied lots of non streetable models. Hooter has listed a great link for parts. I use allot of KTM stuff as it fits and mods well. Got lots of info if you need any help
PS: Most models in US come with the brake/tail light as well low and high beam headlight but only use one as the same harness parts are used in the EU models with some extras to street them
