Hey there so I took my complete rear brake pedal off to paint it black and reinstalled it exactly how I took it off but now my brake lights aren’t working. Any ideas?

Sounds like the switch isn't contacting correctly. I will have to get a better look at mine but I think there is a spring that is involved in the switching mechanism that can be adjusted.

If you could check yours out and let me know man that’d be great!

Look at the service manual as it should have instructions on how to adjust.I cannot check mine since I go rid of the "oil rig" and went with a pressure switch. Highly recommend that mod if you are interested...

Sweet as man what’re the benefits of having a pressure switch?

You’re right there, looks much better without it. How much did that cost roughly?

Aesthetics. The rear brake/horn area looks like it was added a a last minute item that they originally forgot...

Search here. I think lance has good pics of his before/after...

Probably $25. You need the pressure switch, new crush washers and the boot.

If doing the mod decide at the same time if you want forward controls and if you want/need to replace the brake line to SS. Granted those increase the mod price but if you are thinking about them makes sense to only do the labor once...

BTW, I also added speed bleeders when I replaced both my brake lines. make bleeding a simple 1 beer job vs. annoyingly frustrating. They are like $8 each and then about $7 in shipping...
