The first step is to install a brake switch. My preference is for a hydralic switch that replaces the banjo bolt on the rear master cylinder.
Step Two - If you check the manual's wiring diagram (page 7-1) you will see at the rear light assembly there is a lead that is not used that bypasses the first resistor. This is the YELLOW lead from the light to the connector and there is no lead connected to the other side.
I ran a lead from this wire to the brake switch and then ran a return line that I tapped into the positive (GREY) lead feeding the rear light. I have used connectors at the brake switch to allow me to remove the subframe without having to cut the wires and used heat shrink to keep everything waterproof.
When I hit the rear brake, VOILA, I have a brake light.
Do not attempt this mod if you are electron challenged
I had just posted this yesterday in answer to another thread about brake lights.
