I'm sure Sato sells their pressure switch separately.

Replaces the banjo bolt that holds the brake line on the master cylinder. Sato uses a small pressure switch that you epoxy on and it has to be almost perfectly placed. I feel more comfortable with the banjo switch my self. Use one on my clutch line and it works great but that's a brembo set up. I'm working with stock rear master cylinder.

I have no idea what you are talking about. Sato's pressure switch is provided with a new replacement banjo bolt and it is a bolt-on. There is no attaching it with expoxy, etc...

All banjo switches I've found are pressure switches. The same thing as the Sato setup. Again, more detail needed, what is this other banjo bolt setup you want?

That is the switch I was provided with. Require epoxy to mount to rear of rearsets. I did not know sato sold those but that is what I'm looking for. Thank you
