My brake light isn't disengaging when I let go of the front lever. After some reading, I understand the brake switch is just a plunger that sticks out 1/4" or so and is supposed to get depressed when you release the lever. I can force the light to go off by pushing my lever forward.
Both of my levers are loose and jiggle. The dealer said this is normal and demonstrated by walking up to all of the bikes in the service bay and jiggling both handles.
1) I was wondering if anyone has good detailed drawings showing the inside of the housing and the interaction between the lever and the switch? I've read the fix can be as simple as attaching a piece to the contact point of the lever to the switch to further increase the levers ability to push the switch in and turn off the light.
2) What's my best course of action? Should I have the dealer install black levers for me, and if it still acts up blame them and make them fix it? I've been down once, they tried telling me since my rear fender is a custom job that maybe I screwed something up with the wiring, even though I demonstrated that jiggling the front lever caused the light to go on and off. I don't have much faith they'll do any warranty work here as this could fall under 'normal wear and tear.'
Thanks for your time,

It seems like i'd need to insert something on the flat portion of the pin labeled 1 in Fig. 1?
