I had the same story on the FLHX -09. Was discovered by sheer luck inside the garage, brake pedal went straight to the bottom without resistance. I assume the reason it fails is due to the close location to the exhaust system, the heat melts the switch inside... So when mounting I would recommend some extra insulating material. In addition, I made a small heat shield that was mounted between the switch and the system. The part number for original switch is HD 72023-51E all V-rod models.
Part number for V-rods with forward controls. VRSCR with mid control with Brembo brakes use 72025-06B and it has metric threads. I just ordered a spare, thanks for the heads up.
