I'm not sure if it will work on yours ,but I used a hydraulic brake light switch. Good luck with the spring type ,there is no good way and you will break it first ride. :)

I just installed a hydraulic brake switch yesterday on my 450. It took about 20 minutes and cost 16.95. You just screw it in in place of your banjo bolt. I tied into the wires under the seat - connect one to the blue, one to the yellow. Worked great for me. The stock bulb is dual filament. I wouldn't mess with the spring unit as easy/cheap as the hydraulic is.

I used safety wire to attach it to the frame, and to the brake pedal. Drilled a hole for the wire in the pedal arm and it was good to go....
Wiring it is easy, I used the battery + for hot, and ran the other wire to the bulb...be sure to fuse it if you do this! That way, the brake light works whether the engine's running or not......
