    This just started. If I hold the front brake tightly it slowly goes completely soft. That is, from firm and far from the grip, to touching the grip. Yikes.

    OK, sorry for the bad vocabulary. I tried the paperclip and bingo! I got the green neutral light. So the light circuit is good.

    Yes, dropped right out. Was surprised that the 37 yr old damper actually had a little life in it. I'll ride tomorrow to see if you really don't need it.
