Hey everyone I bought a pair of Sato rear sets off a fellow member installed them, and they work great, much better than stock love them! however I have a bit of a problem, how do i attach the factory rear brake light to my new rear sets? I was going to try and zip tie it to the rear set and then try and attach some sort of metal bracket to the brake lever... I don’t know.. heres a picture of what I’m talking about what have you all done to solve this problem? I need to pass inspection!!!!



any help would be great!

thanks

I just cut the sensor off on all my bikes lol, maybe not such a good ideal if your riding around on the streets etc. I would say fab out a small bracket and attach it down by the brake pedal and call it a day...

I have Sato rearsets and do not have a rear brake switch. Since I primarily use the front brake or both, the front brake lever/switch takes care of the brake light.

Right what if you were going 150mph+ and said I only use my rear brake so the po po doesnt see me!! Doesn't add up cause I could see you locking up your rear brake and doing some free back flips lol. And also I will state why even run from a leo in the first place cause you will never beat the radio in the end. Karma's a bitch and I have already experience the hand cuff side of things lol

no need to cut. The connector is just under the seat. Save it for when returned to stock. ..mine is removed also. I never use the rear w/o the front. ...unless I just had an off road excursion... ...and then it doesn't matter much anyway! :helmet:

I've had issue with with the pressure type switches. I want my brakes to be consistant and predictable, no mushy feel. Plus it seemed there had to be heavy pressure on the rear to get it to light. I never use that much rear pressure so it was worthless. imho

not a bad idea... problem is if they're side-mounted radar they already got u.

2bhonest most times when i gotta slow down cos i spot the fuzz, it's in more of a rush than what just the rear brake can handle :helmet: :wink:
The idea is to scrub off speed without lighting up the brake light.:wink: get it?:idea:

When I got my Attack rearsets, I decided to keep the brake light triggering from the rear brake functional. I ended up using an inline pressure switch which over the 5 years of having this setup hasn't caused any problems. The brake light triggers with slight pressure on the brake lever and the brake lever has never exhibited any mushiness.

What I did to install the inline pressure switch was to cut off the stock connector off of the stock brake switch. I crimped some connectors on both ends. Here are some pictures of the setup:

Make sure you get the right one. I believe the thread pitch is 1.25 but double check.
