Default Tail light problem

I just got an '06 cbr f4i...the tail light stays on while driving down the road and when i hit my brakes nothin changes....any thoughts on what could be the problem??

Also, I am looking for a new pipe, where is a good place to look?

is it the stock light? im trying to figure out mine ill let you know as soon as i figure it out, right now i got no ideas, ive tried everything other than puting the stock light back in. i guess it could be my switches, or the light itself, i think the circuit boards on the leds can get fried WAY easy, so i think thats my problem. as for pipe-do you want new or used? - i see you said new, but does that mean new as in different than stock or new new?

More then likely if you replace all the wiring that would be the problem.. Last resort check the bulbs.. I believe its a dual filament bulb and if one of the filaments are blown it would do it.

If you replaced the one and it is still doing it more then likely its your electrical.. There is a diagram floating around here some place.. Did you use a oem harness?

I would also check your brake switch,front or rear might be stuck and not working properly.
