Woodcraft Brake Light Switch

These universal switches allow rearset users to operate the rear brake light. This all-in-one unit replaces the banjo bolt that connects the rear master cylinder to the rear brake line. You simply replace the bolt with this assembly and splice the wires into your existing brake light switch. The pressure inside your brake system then activates the brake light.

Works and fits exactly as described
Works as described and fit my 2003 Kawasaki zx6r perfectly (coarse threads M10-1.25).

Install was easy and plugged right into existing wiring.

Only weak link was that the wires coming out of the banjo bolt seemed unsupported and vulnerable. Used electrical tape and taped it up to the protective wiring sheath.

exactly as advertised
If you are at all competent at wiring, installation should be a breeze. In order for this product to function correctly, you will need to bleed your rear brake lines, so the installation of this product may be a little more involved than you had bargained for. Once installed the pressure switch works perfectly as long as you get all of the air out of your lines. Give yourself a solid hour for install, start to finish.

Great To Have If You Commute And Attend Track Days
If you plan to upgrade to Woodcraft Rearsets and you commute on your bike plus occasionally attend track days, then you probably would want to get this simple switch so that it allows your rear brake light to work while on the street. The rearsets do not come with this part therefore you will need to get it. Since i'm going with Woodcraft Rearsets, I mind as well buy this product from the same company.

Perfect, works with galfer line.
Honda f4i uses the coarse thread. The thing works well and it's a much better mechanism than the OEM spring/switch. I installed this along with a galfer steel brake line so I can confirm that everything works nicely.

Good product but careful tightening!
Installing is pretty easy. It uses brake wire which you expose and connect to this product.

Don't tighten too much.... I tightened too much and snapped the bolt.

Did get to install and must say it isn't too hard to install on m cbr600rr. You will need to remove fairings and gas tank to install.

Fun with the brakes
I had to install the brake fluid pressure sensitive brake light switch with a new set of rearsets I purchased. Overall I am very satisfied with the product. However, I have a few items I'd like to point out with regards to the the finish and installation.

Finish: As you can see from the picture, the cable protector is loose fitting and does not connect to the bolt, leaving the electrical cables exposed to the elements. I have not looked closely at the components, but I suspect dirt has made its way into the cable protector. I'd like to see this improved.

Installation: If you do not know how to bleed brakes, get someone to do it for you or this will be a learning experience. I chose to to learn on the fly. Thanks to the many youtube vid's, I was able to do it safely. Make sure you look into bleeding rear brakes before beginning the project. I needed to pick up additional hardware to do the job. For me, I ended up purchasing a bleeding kit at the local auto shop.

Over all the installation took about an hour, including the rear brake bleeding and electrical.

I bought an aftermarket rearset for my 2010 Ninja 250 and it did not have provisions for a rear brake switch. With this having the switch integrated into the bolt, I wouldn't need the provisions.

Bought a set of rearsets and I needed to replace the banjo bolt with this rear brake sensor. Works great, but I had to bleed the brake line which complicated the installation.

In the future I plan to get the Woodcraft Rearsets for my Ninja 250R therefore this brake light switch should fit no problem.

Im new to motorcycles and need new rearsets for my 09 ninja 250, im getting the woodcrafts, but i need the brake lights switch. What is the difference between the course M10x1.25 and fine M10x1.0?
A C on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Go to woodcraft website, CFMotorsports they have a size chart for your bike.
Would this rear brake light switch work for a FZ-09? If so, do I select the fine or coarse type?
Thanks.

Can anyone confirm how this installs on a 2013 Ninja ZX-6R? The manufacturer's site mentions that you splice the existing brake light wire but everything else that I've read says it plugs right into the harness.
Michael G on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It splices into the the wires on the factory switch. Don't worry about cutting wires, it's not as big of a deal as everyone makes it out to be
How do you install this item?
Kevin T on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It plugs directly into the oem plug on the wiring harness side form the rearset you are taking off. The banjo bolt side is a little more difficult. You need to drain your rear brake resivour. It screws Into the bolt hole that holds the rear brake line on. Hince the banjo bolt. It is a pressure switch. Once it get it screwed in and plugged up put brake fluid back in. Make sure you bleed your brakes. Wouldn't want any air in the system
Do I need this for my 2015 s1000rr?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you put aftermarket rearsets on your bike, and want your brake light to come on when you use the rear brake, then yes you need this. If you don't care if your brake light comes on, and your state doesn't require it then you don't need it.
is this a universal product? does this work with other rearsets other than woodcraft ?
Jason D on Mar 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It replaces the banjo bolt on the brake line so as long as you get the correct three it will be universal.
Anyone know what the thread pitch on a brake light switch needed for a 2016 Yamaha R1. M10-1.0 or M10-1.25? Thanks
