vortex rear sets, rear brake light preasure switch not same a s plug

I have vortex rear sets and just moved to PA, they require an inspection and of course, I didnt have the rear brake light hooked up due to the aftermarket rear sets, I got the vortex rear light switch, just rebleed my brake and am not in the process of running the wires to the plug, the connections are completely different, can I just cut the wires and splice them on the the ZX10 original plug wires???? I need help....

YES you should be able to just wire it directly if needed or not even use it and next time during the "inspection" just hit the front brake while you do the rear so the light will still come on. i've rode without the rear brake switch for years cause 95% of the time you're on the front brakes as well as the rear or I mainly use the front to scrub off most of my speed, the rear for me is mainly trailbraking or at a light sometimes. this may not be for everyone but it's always worked for me.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

just finished..

I rarely use my rear brake, but PA has this inspection that has to be done. I just clipped the wires with the plug and clipped the wires on the actual Vortex wires and sodered and heat shinked them, works fine now.
