Part: Honda CB360 / CB450 Front Brake Light Pressure Switch
Why You Need This: Unless you plan to keep your Honda CB360 / CB450 running only for track days, you probably want anyone who is behind you to see your brake light when you squeeze the lever. The disc brake equipped Honda CB360 and CB450 uses a pressure switch, located on the junction block at the lower triple tree to activate the brake light. Condensation, old brake fluid and age are factors that often cause the pressure switch to stop working, or even worse, work intermittently. Make sure your brake light shines bright every time you apply the front brake by installing a new brake light pressure switch and diligently inspecting your brake lines, caliper and master cylinder for any necessary replacements or rebuilds.
Installation Tip: Switch should to be installed with the front brake system drained and cleaned of old brake fluid and dirt. The best time to install this is during a brake system overhaul. Check the condition of the electrical terminals that connect the switch to the wiring harness for loose and / or broken connections. When bleeding the brake always use fresh fluid from a sealed container, we recommend synthetic brake fluid over conventional.
