I suggest that you get a pressure switch for the rear brake if you are using the bike on the street. The Lextec switch holder works but is a pain to adjust.

Be sure to use BLUE Loctite on all the threads.

YES on the loctite, found this out the hard way. Down shifted just fine coming off a interstate ramp, got down to the red light and I had no shifter, looked down and it was dangling by the linkage. Gathered up all the bolts and put em in my pocket.

Had to do the ride of shame in first gear to the nearest part store, which luckily wasn’t far, but I didn’t make any friends along that route. Equally lucky, I had everything I need to put it all back together minus a washer, which they had. Could’ve been way worse.

For a rear brake switch, I was gonna look into getting one of the old spring type rear brake switches. Shouldn’t be too hard to make a bracket for it, or just retrofit an existing one, I don’t like the idea of the sensor being the banjo bolt. I’ve seen too many oem style fittings like this leak internally into the switch.
