Reattaching brake switch to aftermarket rearsets?

Recommended Posts

Mr.Puss
Hey guys, I cant find the old post about this....
Last season I installed some DrivenTT rearsets but havent figured a way to properly and safely reattach (without jury rigging) the little spring/switch that activates the brake light. Not a big deal as I always use the hand brake as well but I would feel much better having foot activation also.
 
Is my research correct that I simply need a different pressure switch such as this one and if so is 10mm x 1.25 the correct threading?

Anyone tackled this? How did you go about it?.... simply install and bleed the brakes?
 
Very much appreciated.

It might be the Graves one but some are usefully sensitive, others you have to stand on the pedal for it to register.

Ah ok, I'll look into the Graves and scour some forums. Thanks!

I do have the Driven TT rearsets, but unfortunately I'm not using the rear brake light switch at all...

or even the rear brake. If you look carefully at his bike you see the toe of the lever is designed to fold down in case he makes a mistake and actually tries to use it.

just kidding.

Sorry for dragging up an old thread.
 
Looking to Driven TT rearsets also; Any reason you went with the Tusk Brake switch over the Vortex?  Is the 10mm x 1.25 correct for our bikes?

I went with the switch by "Goodridge" and to be honest I still havent had/made time to install it. FWIW people complained less about issues ie: leaks with this brand.
From the research Ive done this is the correct size.

...and they are nicely made Rearsets.

Thanks
 
Went with the Spiegler Brake Light Switch ($20 from Revzilla).  Figured since Spiegler brake lines are good, hopefully the switch will be also.
 
Was able to get Revzilla to price match the Driven TT rearsets to $307 ($80 off).
