They wind their way up under the seat to a connector block on the r/h frame rail. Think it's a white connector.

I cut and joined the wires on mine

I just cut the old switch off - leaving some wire on the switch in case I want to refit it later and joined the wires to the new hydraulic brake switch.

Did you fit a RSV4 rear master cylinder (With integral reservoir) or did you just reposition the original?

just using the standard urine cup for now.
back brake really good ....i can do skidsSmile
had to un flip the mounting plates,i have crash mushrooms on my frame and the shins of my sidi boots
were bashing into them i could barely change gear.
might remove them,anyone know the length of the m10 rear engine mounting bolts,need shorter ones if
i  remove the mushrooms.

but overall very happy with them.

Have a look on here; I'm think they give bolt diameter and length.

People say I don't know Jack Sh1t; but I do, he lives next door.

ok,mushrooms removed and the footrest plates flipped again.
mounted as low as i could,had to bash an exhaust spring holder flatter as it hit the brake push rod.
feels much better for me,(6foot 2inch,34 inside leg)
can now ride comfortably with my toes on the pegs,felt like a jump jockey before.
did a few skids but the tyre wouldn't squeal which was disappointing,but i can live with that.

Do you know the best way to bleed the rear by taking the caliper off and lifting it high and upside down?
