The original brake light switch cover on 2005 models is made of plastic and merely snaps into place above the rear brake lever. Because of its design, it can also snap out of place if inadvertently kicked or contacted by a branch or something similar. This could result in the cover getting jammed between the brake lever and the frame, preventing the lever from springing back to the off position. This means the brake could remain activated while riding, without the riders knowledge, causing the rear brake to overheat and possibly fail.
This Wunderlich cover for the rear brake light switch replaces the plastic original and is bolted securely in place, preventing the problems that can be caused by the plastic piece. It is as much an improvement to appearance as it is to safety.
Please Note: This part does not fit 2006 and later models. A similar part for 2006 and later models is available.
