Rear brake switch cover

Post by Interpol2471 »

Hi all
Does anyone have a spare good condition rear brake switch cover for an IP2 or Classic.

Appreciate a message if you have.

Paul,
The original covered Brembo switch with blade terminals is nothing but a PITA for those who ride their bikes. Road dirt, salt, and water fin their way inside to cause corrosion of the terminals and the rubber diaphragm inside the switch slowly hardens, needing more & more pressure on the pedal to make the light work.

My solution was to fit a KTM part, same threaded fitting, with long wires sealed into the switch, allowing the harness connection to be made in a drier area. Look at eBay for a selection, all around £20.

Alternatively, I have one of the correct type left, £10 inc P&P, UK Mainland.

I know it doesn't look 'original', and that matters to some owners.

Just a bike-less old fogey now. Boo-hoo!
