Need info on start problem

2006 Burgman 400 has developed a start problem.
Replaced 6-10 amp fuses and 2-15 amp fuses [ouch nothing wrong with them, oh well now I have spares, a tester and a puller], battery fully charged. Kill switch off, kick stand up, key in correct position, lights work, back break lights work too]

Set up, Bike's on center stand: Turned on ignition switch, F1 error [not flashing], kick stand up, lights work, battery fully charged, left rear brake lever engaged--no sound, cranking, or starting.

Same as above but engaged right front brake lever and bike started.
Can hear fuel engaged sound when cranking.

Think solution from somewhere on this forum was left front brake switch? Said parts ran under $200. Need to know so I can order part(s).

Just paid $400+ and change for front bearings, parking cable installation and brake fluid change on both brake lines. Trip down mountain with big jumping and racket when applying front right brake lever. Emergency visit to closest dealer 3 hours out from home location. Trying to keep the new repair down low haven't paid for the last fix yet.

Sounds like the left hand brake switch has gone out. You can confirm it by pulling the left brake lever and looking to see if the brake lights come on. If they don't the switch is bad.

Part number for the switch is 57460-17C11. They run about $25. Here is a link to a fiche with the part on it. It is item 5.

As you can see from the fiche it is only held on by a single screw. Takes about 5 minutes to change.
It will not affect the motor. As you mentioned, as long as the right one works you can start the bike. You just don't have a brake light when you pull the left lever but since the right one works your brake light will come one when you pull that lever.

There is no fuse for the lights near the back of the bike.
