I've given up on the stock front brake light switch.
No matter what I do, I can't get it to work properly.

The rear works fine.

So I've decided to install a "hydraulic switch".
(Someone from GDC told me to do this last year.)
It looks like a pretty simple fix.
My question is which kit do I need ?
Since the brake lines are stock I'm guessing that I need the "single bleed".

K&S

10mm Diameter x 1.00mm Thread Pitch, Single Bleed ?
Or
10mm Diameter x 1.25mm Thread Pitch, Single Bleed ?

Thanks

LOL- Twice

For some reason I can only to get the brake light
to stay on, or not work at all.
I've tried to move the contact to every possible position.
I believe it should be to the far outside,
but that is when I get the brake light continuously on.
It should be a simple fix, but it is driving me crazy.

Thanks Manito

I'll check the housing to make sure it doesn't looked damaged.
I'm almost positive the problem is where the contact hits the plate.
What else could it be?

It's going to be another lousy day out tomorrow, maybe I'll give it another shot.

Lockhart Phillips has them.
408-0501clear cad plated $22.95
408-0500 gold cad plated $17.95

They also have the double banjo if you have the double line kit and want to mount it at the m/c.

If you have the bottom plate of the switch (The wires attach to) turned around


Thanks Mike; That was it.......
In my own defense, I was only replacing it the way
it was when I bought it...no wonder it never worked........but it works great now.
