95' EVO, Heritage Front Brake - Stiff FLSTC

Preparing to troubleshoot front brake. Searched forum, nothing popped up, maybe I don't know how to search forum.

going to pull out the repair manual in 5, to see what is there.

Bike sat up over the winter, front brake is stiff, and not braking very well.

Also, front brake light switch has stopped working.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks in advance....

Sounds like corrosion in the lever pin and the switch.

The switch housing has to be up tight against the master cylinder housing, a gap between the two housings can be the problem.
