Mike don't feel bad. . .it happened to me when I put on the the aftermarket rearsets. I thought the brake light wasn't working. . .but it was already on, constantly. The actuator switch plunger had to be readjusted at the brake pedal. Found out by process of elimination. ---Now let's move on to the exciting mods!!!
Believe me Roy, I'M READY to move on to the fun and exciting mods! I ordered some cosmetic/comfort items yesterday: Renthal ultra-low bars, Renthal superbike grips, Renthal 44t rear sprocket, Vortex 16t front sprocket, RK Gold 530 chain, heavy duty chain tool, a few replacement parts from Kyle Racing to get my damaged Sato rearsets functional again, LOS tie-bar, Rizoma Radial naked mirrors, as well as an F4i rear axle off ebay. My credit card is screaming for mercy...
Over the weekend I dug out my boxes of old parts from the wrecked 919 and installed the Yoshimura CF slip ons, black billet gas cap, LED blinkers & license plate light, Sargent seat, and rear wave rotor. I also painted the custom side panels, FI covers, instrument cover, and headlight brackets... BLACK.
I had the front wave rotors installed and realized that one of them is slightly bent and rubbing, so they came back off. I need to figure out if it's salvageable.
Besides the parts on order, the "to do" list for this weekend also includes more old parts from the wrecked 919: the PC III, speedo healer, S/S brake lines and Progressive shock. I also need to get gaskets and install the Circuit 1 covers.
My biggest frustration is that the main part of the project is on hold because I STILL can't find an RC51 front wheel. I've had the RC51 forks and extra 919 stem for quite a while, but I seem to be on permanent hold. I'm also searching for a 929/954 lower triple and a RC51 top triple. No luck so far anywhere I look... and I cringe at the though of having to buy those parts new from the dealer...
We'll see how much I can actually get accomplished this weekend. I'll post some photos of what I get done.
