Vortex Rear Set

Hi all
I just installed the vortex rear set on my 04 ZX10R, the blue kind.

I need someone to teach me how to adjust them - how do I know where I want them, towards the back or front, up or down?
also, I got two different size shift connecting rods, I can really only put them in a couple of places, but not everywhere, so do I just buy the size that I want.

where do I buy the pressure brake light switch?

thanks in advance

The dif length rods are for regular and GP shift.

I would suggest putting the rearsets in the middle of their adjustment range and see how you like it there and move them as necessary. I guessed where mine would be in relation to the stockers by holding them next to the stockers and then went a little higher on the pegs. Worked out pretty good, but it is murder to ride for more than 50 miles.

You can get the inline pressure switch from vortex, but I do not think that many people install it. Your brakelight will come on when you apply front brake so, unless you want the light on while you are using the rear to keep from rolling at a red light, I do not really see a use for it.
