Why You Need This: It would be bad news to find out that your brake light does not come on when you squeeze the lever while on the move. It has happened to us and it's hard to notice especially when the front drum brake responds just fine. The mechanical brake light switch that is fitted on your Honda CB175, CL175, SL175 / CB200, CL200 / CL350, CB350, SL350 / CJ360, CL360 / CL450 is mounted in the right-hand brake lever perch. It is a small plastic switch that is often stuck, dry rotting away, destroyed, or even missing on many old bikes. Fear not because it is an easy swap out with one of our new high-quality, Japan-made switches, guaranteed to fit and get your brake light working as it should. Also, make sure the rest of your front drum brake is up to its full potential and replace the old brake shoes, brake cable, and broken levers to ensure your Honda CB175, CL175, SL175 / CB200, CL200 / CL350, CB350, SL350 / CJ360, CL360 / CL450 stops like it is new.
Installation Tip: Make sure the electrical connectors are clean and the switch is seated correctly. It would also be good to check the brake cable and shoes at this time for excessive wear or binding.
*Note: Some early CB/CL175K3, CL450s and CB350s use a cable-mounted brake light switch, which is obsolete. A conversion to this style switch is possible but will require a right-hand lever perch with a switch mounting hole and re-routed wiring.
