Mike,its a pressure switch.You would hook those two wires into the plug that used to pick up the wires from the stock TL brake switch.The hydraulic pressure in the brake line activates the contacts in the switch.

:yes 900SS's had them in the 1970's.

Once it is fitted,you should be able to check it on a Ohm setting on a multi meter and get a reading when the brake pedal is depressed.

Mike,

Here it is on my rear caliper. I had to put it here due to the thread pitch of what I had and where it was going to work. Normally it would go on the MC but it works the same in both locations.

I didn't worry with it. I never used the rear with out the front, so I didn't even bother with it.

new crush washers too!

i didn't when i installed my switch, now i have to take it off again to fit new washers cos it leaks - but only when i press the pedal! (i was in a rush to get a working rear switch for my MOT!)

Yep, pressure switch - replaces the banjo bolt. I used one when I converted my CR250R to be street legal (sort of). Works great:thumbup I put mine on the rear MC, but anywhere will work, just put it whever fits and gives the cleanest wire routing.

have fun
