RC Sato rear-set

Tricky being back with an RC question raised one I've had for quite sometime. It's something that I really never worried about, but should have.

For those that put on Sato rear-sets. How did you connect the rear brake light switch?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

What rear brake light switch?

Most use a hydraulically activated banjo bolt switch.

Rob recommended that I disconnect the rear brake
so I left a little air in the system to make it mushy

On the Honda, they use a separate mechanical spring switch. I just realized that I never remounted it onto the new configuration and I'm certain that it fits?

For the 919, Sato supplies the pressure switch Mikey mentioned.
I cut off the spring switch and spliced in the pressure switch.

Mikey, did you have to cut off about an inch from the reservior to master cylinder hose?

Never received it. It's been a few since my conversion. Looks like I'll have to buy one now.

I may be riding past your parts tonight. Depending on the time, I'll give you a call.

The other Mikey will respond. I did not cut the hose.

I never installed the switch that came with my Satos.

Your welcome to it (If I can find it)

I'll dig around this afternoon.
