Best way to wire up a rear brake light on WR400?
Posted September 14, 2008 - 04:06 AM
In the past all my bikes have had a sensor that has a spring attached to the brake lever,when you press the lever it pulls the spring which turns the brake light on.
With the wr being an off road bike i cant see anywhere to mount a sensor,does anyone know the best thing to do to get one working?
I thought about maybe using tie wraps or after searching on here people use hydraulic sensors but i have no idea how they work or where to get one in the UK
Any help is appreciated thanks!

If the sensor that youve put a link to will work with my bike ill buy one of them it looks simple enough

But you should have free connector for it under the tank if bike was ment to have the brake light switch.
ask your YMH dealer for this part

I dont think my bike originally had lighting out of the factory,the bike has an aftermarket led light fitted on the rear and an aftermarket headlight.
There is a wire from the rear light and wire from under the tank area that both have spade connectors that are hanging by the rear brake servo.
The servo definately doesnt have a hydraulic sensor in the top of it its just a normal bolt so its abit strange why wires are there but no sensor
But ive seen a sensor on a UK website just like the one in the link so will i be ok just using that instead of ringing Yamaha?

Using the two wires from the switch, one goes to the unused connector under the seat for the brake lamp, the other wire can be spliced anywhere in the the yellow wire that powers the headlamp and the tail lamp.
