Yes. There is a brake light switch at the Rr brake pedal. a spring connects the two. The switch probably has an adjusting nut on it & a couple of mounting nuts. On my 81 KZ650 the manual has a warning to make sure the switch body does not turn during adjustment, so that the connections inside the switch don't get damaged.

The owner's manual may have instructions on how to adjust the rear brake pedal & brake light switch.

Do you mean the airbox ducts? If they are soft, it should be easy.
On my 81 650 I sometimes just push them into the airbox & reinstall from inside the airbox.
Often times it's suggested to remove the airbox bracket bolts to get a little wiggle room, but I never bother doing that.
If they're hard, you could cut them out. avoid damaging the airbox. A heat gun might help soften hard ones for removal.
I'm not sure if a heat gun could ignite gasoline, though.
