There are instances where I'd like the indication light i.e. holding the front lever, then releasing on a slope and keeping my boot on the foot control; I want the idiot cager behind me to not just assume that because the brake light "went off" I'm moving and therefore he/she can hit the gas.

Regardless, to each his own, but I've got one and I'm gonna install it.

Yes to each his/her own. In your situation I normally use the hand brake. I just need 1 finger on the brake and the rest on the throttle. As for the cars, well there going to do whatever they do, I doubt if they notice that brake light anyway.

Ok... I'm first to stop at a light on an incline w/ a teen cager behind me...

I have the front brake applied and all is good.

I want to adjust my backpack or helmet or something and need both hands.

I release the front lever and apply the rear control - all the teen cager sees is a brake light that's gone off - I've got daddy's SUV up my arse.

Look, I'm not trying to start an argument here. All I can say is do you honestly think that if the as you say "teen in a SUV" is actually paying that little attention that he/she will notice your brake light go out but not notice you sit up and adjust what ever you need to? I can understand your need to be as seen as you can.

Nor am I...

I have no doubt that sometimes all they might see are the lights. Have you never been in your cage and watched the reaction of a cager behind you as you let off the brake??? There's no body movement, or pud'n... they see the light go off and gas it.

Regardlless, I posted this simply as info for those wishing to maintain a brake signal w/ the foot control. There are way to many bad drivers here in Utah to ignore!

I drive a car 6 months out of the year, you have to where I'm at and more people get hit coming to a stop than starting, atleast here. Anyway I can feel your animosity toward car drivers from the way you call them cages. You be safe, I'm done.

Arrow rearsets? Killer. How much do those run? Is your rear res leaking or is it wet or something?

Not leaking... shot the pic like minutes after finishing the switch job and hadn't yet cleaned things up.

Essential here in Australia. They test each brake independently when doing a road worthy certificate. Sure you'd get away with it before, or, just after a road worthy inspection for one year. You loose a little feel, works by hydraulic pressure.
Ive installed one on a previous bike with rear sets that require a bango bolt brake light pressure switch.
Good post, and thanks for the picture.
