2000 Varadero xl1000 brake light problem

2000 Varadero xl1000 brake light problem

Alright lads, so I have a Honda Varadero XL1000 and it recently developed a weird problem. The taillight works fine when the lights are on but the brake light doesn’t work whether the lights are on or off.

I’ve replaced the bulbs with brand new ones and I’ve checked the fusebox under the seat and the fuses are all good. I recently replaced the rear turn signals with new LED ones and I soldered in proper resistors to balance the load and they all work fine and there is no loose wiring around/behind the brake light assembly.

I have no idea what may be going wrong, can anyone please help?
