Sato Rearsets 919 install

Any advice on m saturday project? I am installing Sato rearsets on the 919...my only concern...brake light switch. Anyone know if this is "plug and play"?

Thanks

Plug n' play. You might want to add a drop or two of blue threadlocker [Loctite 242] to the mounting bolts that secure the Sato's to the bike.

Cool, red Loctite right? thats what Sato recomended. Did your brake light switch plug right into the stock Honda wiring or did you have to cut and install new connectors? Thanks, R

The plug is the same, although I still have not installed mine. Blue or red Loctite.. either will do. The red is rated for higher temps. The Blue is more for screws that come out and get put back often.. it stays on the threads and therefore doesn't need to be reapplied every time. It just creates resistance so it would back out. FYI: use something cuz the bolts will come out. Ask me how I know

The use of red Loctite might reqiuire heat if you need to remove any bolts.
I prefer the blue, never had a piece of hardware loosen up on me.

before you run out and buy some loctite, if I remember correctly, my Sato rear sets came with a little tube of blue loctite...

Aside from increased lean angle ability, what is the advantage of adding rear sets?

agreed...less vibration, less weight, more precise shifting.....in my opinion, anywhere your body touches the bike is a good place to upgrade....it is your direct connection to the bike. Grips, bars, rearseats, and seats are great places to spend dough on your bike.
