vortex adjustable rear sets, res relocate?

I just got my vortex adjustable rear sets, had them shipped to my parents house so my wife doesnt bust my balls, as I have not seen them yet, do I have to relocate my rear brake res? or will everything mount right up?
Thanks in advance, and I know I am a candy ass for having them shipped to my parents house.

The res will bolt right up to the vortex peg assembly. You will have to buy a pressure sensor though and tap that into your rear brake line so your brake light will work. I have a set and love them. Congrats on the new toys. Any questions just holler.

I cant wait to put them on, I guess I cant wait to see them too. I rarely use my back brake, I may just leave the presure switch off, unless I need to put it on??

I haven't went down and looked at the pegs compared to the stock ones but it seems like there isn't a spot to hook up a spring that actuates the brake light. So without the pressure switch put in, you don't have a rear brake light.

Yeah, the married life. You hate to cover up, but it is easier.
See you from Columbus, I am from Parkersburg, WV.....across river from Marietta and Belpre, OH.
You ever ride 821 or 26 or any of the southeast ohio roads??????
If you want to give the 10 a workout.....we can hook it up.

Right the foot brake won't work the brake light. Front will be as always though.

can you post up a pic of how you ran the wires to the light & battery? I've been holding off installing mine b/c the wires will be too exposed
