Rear brake switch install on vortex rearsets???

Anyone happen to have any pictures?

Im installing the rearsets right now on my 07 zx10r and im trying to figure out how the pressure switch is installed so i can keep the function of my rear brake light from my rear brake lever? I have the rear brake pressure switch here in front of me but just dont see how to hook it up?

Let me know guys. Thanks!

Not sure what is supplied with your kit. I know Sato uses a brake line switch from Spiegler. You can see it here http://www.spieglerusa.com/cfm/BrakeAcc.cfm

It replaces the stock banjo bolt and plugs into the brake light line. Direct mount up. Works off the pressure in the line not a pull switch on the stocker.

Not sure if that helps but it could be a work around if you dont find a solution.

I left mine off , its useful when you go past a PoPo and have to hit the anchors, no light can sometimes be advantageous.

Other than the above posted reason (and the occasional track day), I don't really see a lot of other reasons to even use the rear brake at all. 99% of the time I'm using the front.

Yeah, i use the front most of the time too but i wouldnt mind having it hooked up. Oh well, no rush to put it in, ill just hold onto it until i decide to install it later down the road. Who knows, might not ever put it in.

Don't know if you were aware, but I talked to a guy at www.hardracing.com and he said that you have to buy another switch for the Vortex joints. They have the switch there for about $23.

I am currently installing vortex race rearsets on my 07 zx10r there should be a pin that goes in the rear back bottom or a metric bolt with a locking nylon nut to secure to your vortex rearsets bottom back left hole. i am sure by now you traced the pig tails under your gas tank by now. will send pixs when done very very simple bolt on part.
