The original front brake light switch is held in position by a very small screw and a bit of glue. If it fails, applying the front brake won't trigger the rear brake light. Our protector prevents this from happening. We surround the switch with a light aluminum part and give it a secure attachment point. The protector comes complete with silver anodized bracket and fitting kit. Easy to fit, simply fit under the right side control unit.
R1200 GS Owners Please Note: This part fits 2005 and 2006 models only. 2007 and later bikes do not have a brake switch on the handlebar and so therefore, this part is not needed.
