Brake light aren't working

Need help with my brake lights, just had new bodywork installed on my bike and now the tail lights aren't working. The light isn't coming on with the front or rear brake.

Did you install a undertray? You really just need to trace the wires back from the taillight to see if anything came disconnected. You may have shorted out a wire and blew a fuse. Make sure you havnt rubbed through the harness anywhere

traced the wires and found the problem, the rear brake switch was loose, and the mechanic tighten the zip tie to tight around the wires running from the front brake to the rear brake switch. I tight it up rear brake switch and loosen the zip tie and now both front and rear works fine. Thanks Screamin Chief
