ViragoTechForum.com Tech Help Rear Brake Switch (SOLVED)

#1:  Rear Brake Switch (SOLVED) Author: lagomorph0 Post Posted: Mon Jul 05, 2010 10:32 pm

I haven't yet seen a photo online of where the spring attaches from the rear brake switch to the brake pedal.

I put it in the same hole that the main spring uses, but it seems to be too low, the brake switch is pulled at all times even with the switch adjustment lowered all the way.

The only other thing it looks like it could hook onto is the main spring itsself, which seems kind of wierd. So, where is this thing supposed to go?

TIA,
Lago

Yes! I see some photoshopping in my near future.

How hard is it to paint your tank and side covers?

That's right where I wound up putting that spring's lower end. After dicking around with it for a while trying to get it to work everywhere else, I gave up and left it right there hooked to the bottom of the spring. That's been a thousand miles ago or so, and no trouble with it.
