P.S.- considering hydraulic to avoid the need to fabricate a mount above the rear brake for the switch... How did you mount yours?

I didn't need to fab a mount, the switch came with a bracket, all I had to do was mount it. I'll see if the dealer has any more and get the part # if you want...

yzman just posted this for me on the dualsports forum....and if you've read enough of his posts you can be assured he knows what he is talking about! Thanks again yzman:
Hey ExTex. You can get your bike legal way cheeper than the Trick dual sport kit. All you need is the following
Hydraulic brake light switch $15-20 www.bajadesigns.com
Acerbis Mirror $15 www.Rockymountainmc.com
Toggle switch $3 Radiioshack
Some wire and connectors $10 Radiioshack
DOT Kenda Trackmaster tires $75 a pair thru www.Rockymountainmc.com
Honda Kill switch $10 Honda
Radioshack Personal alarm and 9v battery $10 Radioshack
Insurance $50 thru www.bike-line.com
Here is the horn. Just wire the Honda Kill switch to the alarm. Open the alarm up and there are 2 metal tabs with wires on them. cut the metal tabs off and attach the wires to the kill switch. Instant horn.
Your rear tailight is already wired for a tailight / brakelight. You just need to splice in and wire in the hydraulic pressure switch. Pretty easy really.
The headlight is a high low bulb. But like the tailight isn't wired. Take the toggle switch and wire it in so you have high/low beam.
That should do you. $140 is way cheeper than any dual sport kit you will find.
