Brake Light Switches

Postby malcward » Mon Jul 23, 2012 3:59 pm

How many OIF bikes have broken brake light switches when you buy them?

This may be the answer a strengthened version from Crankbuster.

I have just got mine I painted it and swapped the contacts out of one of my broken ones and It fitted a treat.

Hi Barry,
the 3D printed part is only the body of the switch, so you need to use the insides and cover off the old/broken one.

Malc, which material did you choose for it ?
Just wondering about the black stuff, since you've painted yours.

Your rubber bits are on the way, by the way.

Hi Roadplough

I used the White Strong and flexible Polished ,as I have found the un polished surface tends to pick up dirt.

You could use the black, but I would seal with a clear coat.

Cheers Malc

P.S. Just thought of another bit for you to make ,Battery Carrier rubbers, the ones I bought were nothing like the correct size.

Thanks, White Strong and flexible Polished seems like the one to mould from too (elec box rubbers), without buying a sample pack.
Battery Carrier rubbers, good thought, mine is black hard and not flexible.

Hooray for crankbuster!
