WTB Front brake switch

I need a front brake switch if anyone has one. Rear brake light works and I tested the wires for the front and they are alright. Must be the switch.
While I am at it I need an OEM rear rotor. Mine is very worn.

go to a dealer for the switch. I bought one and i think it was $5-$6 dollars. looked online and with shipping it cost more. It is just a micro switch and if you get a used one there is no telling if the conacts are worn out or pitted. Its not worth it for the cost of the switch

Here is something good to know for anyone who reads this....they are all the same from what I can tell. Mine is an 02 919 and I looked at the new CBR 1000's, they are the same. Dealer here wants about $25 for one. After looking at a few Hondas, Suzukis and a Triumph I just went home and took the one off my '83 shadow 500. Yup it is the same!

Still need a rotor however.
