Brake Light not Working

Hey All,
i recently installed a Hotbodies Fender Elimnator this weekend, Everything went smooth. Everything is lined up properly, LED blinkers work. The main thing i'm haveing issues with is the Brake Light. It comes on but when the front or rear brake is applied it does not get brighter. The Bulb fillaments are still in good shape, i even replaced it for sh*ts and giggles. I tried messing with the rear brake spring and nothing worked same with the front lever connector. I even pulled all the fuses for the hell of it and everything is fine. I was wondering if someone can possibly chime in on this and give me some ideas where to start, because i definately don't want to ride it when it's not working and it is my daily driver so if anyone can help that'd be fantastic. Thanks

By the way is a 2009 250r. Thanks guys.

Problem Solved, After realizing my front brake lever would not click anymore after applying the brakes i went to the brake switch under the master cylinder. Checked connectors on the switch itself and it seems to not be funtioning correctly. Went to my local dealer and picked a new switch up figured worst case scenario i'd be out 25 bucks wasting it on a part i didn't need. I went ahead and replaced it with the new one and voila! brake light now works. Not even sure how these brake switches go bad but if anyone ever gets this issue try the brake switch. As for pictures of the bike with with the new Fender Eliminator i will post some up this weekend when i wash her up.
