Rear brake light switch for Sherco ST 250

Postby Gerald » Sun Mar 25, 2018 4:01 pm

Hi

I’m looking to fit a rear brake light switch to Sherco ST 250 (2018) with the objective of getting Victorian Recreational Registration.

Searching the internet for information on how to do this has not been helpful at all. I would greatly appreciate ideas, suggestions and/or advice on how best to go about this including what sort of switch to use etc.

Thanks

Gerald

can't remember which bike, but something had a hydraulic pressure switch for the rear brake in years gone by...I'll keep searching

Shouldn't be too hard...in fact lots of road bikes etc use a hydraulic pressure switch you can just add into the system. Wiring, you'll have to do yourself

If you're good welding or know someone who is. You could go to a bike wrecker and get the brake light switch mount from a busted frame and mount it to your bike. Drill a hole in your lever for the spring and viola, apart from the wiring.
Alternatively, you could see if they have a bike with the hydraulic type and you're off to mod land.

Let us know how you get on
