Just put some used rear sets on my RC. They did NOT come with a rear brake light switch. I have combed the net and maybe I'm not using the right search terms but can someone guide me to the best solution? Pictures of your setups maybe with a part number for the banjo integrated switch? I assume that is the easiest way? I tried searching first and thank you ahead of time.

I think I have located the part. Should be Goodridge PBL992-32CH. Also, it should be 10mm x 1.25 thread pitch for anyone looking.

Yup, best solution is to just use your front brakes, the only time I use my rear is when traffic is crawling...the brake light doesn't get brighter using FanR. If you really want thou, get some epoxy ,a small bracket and a spring, I'm sure you make that work.

I just feel like something is broken if it doesn't work...

I've seen both sides of this discussion. There is no black and white as there are significant geographical differences in enforcement.

For me, I didn't want the potential hassle of a non working rear brake switch. Seen it with the po po hassle first hand.

That is why I have the switch, bought it with the Sato rearsets. Thx for the post wademcgee to add it on to others.

I just removed mine, and cleaned up the wireharness, its pretty busy to begin with, with wire, tubes and everything, so looks a lot "cleaner".

Although they are mandatory in Denmark, letting off the thottle probably slows the bike down faster anyways, and hardly ever use the rearbrake.

I just want mine to work, call me strange. I also found this in a Goodridge manual. Some good info on this page actually.
