2009 Honda rebel 250.
I just bought a new taillight/brake light and noticed that my brake light does not get brighter when I step on the rear brake or when the front brake lever is engaged. I checked the switches (both seem to be fine). Could this be a wire issue (the green with yellow stripe)? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It sounds to me like you have the brake light wired in at the tail light wires. Not all wires are colored the same for replacement lights. The package the light came in should have a wiring diagram on it showing where the wires on the light should go on the bike.

I’m pretty sure it’s wired correctly. Positive and negative wire and the engaged brake wire (followed the diagram and tested each wire).
