My 2001 has a defective brake light switch on the handlebar. I've cleaned it twice but it failed again. According to the parts fiche, I have to purchase the entire right grip wiring harness for $125. :(

Please tell me I'm wrong and show me where I can purchase just the switch.

Thanks
Len

Are you saying the small microswitch is broken, or the large assy that is a clam shell around the bar? My microswitch has gone out on both sides.. at different times, and the cost for a new microswitch was less than $15 each time. What exactly is broken?

Which fiche? The online fiche is incomplete. It does not say that radio knobs are available separately and if you wanted a set you'd have to spend $1500 for a new radio. Not so. Knobs are $3 each. Check with your dealer first. Many things are on the dealer's fiche that are not on the online fiches (dunno how to pluralize fiche).

the online fiche at HDL does show the radio knob (#27) as being a seperate item, for some reason it does not allow the part number to be viewed. the diagram is the exact one that the dealer uses. #25, the bulbs, part number is not shown either, the dealers show it but for a 2003 on up, not gor a 2001. the radio assembly is the same making it reasonable that the bulbs will work which they did. some detective work must be done to obtain the right part number. the switch for the brake is as i posted above, 35340-mca-000. dcannot finf 35340-mca-000-001

Mike, it's the switch that fits under the brake lever.

Kajunwing: Thanks for the part number, but where did you find it? I think the (001) was the quanity, not a part number.

Motorcycle Boy & Waldo: Did you get the number from a dealer, or did you find it somewhere on the HDL fiche?

Thanks for the help guys,

Len

Mudbug,
I suppost you mean Automotive Brakes, not Automotives. :?

Hey, just joking, you're right. I guess I slipped the first post out with "breaks" instead of "brakes." :wink:

I have the part number now, but what I need to know is where these guys found it. If it's on the HDL fiche, please tell me where.

Thanks for your help.

Touche' my friend, fingers slip a lot around here, if you go to the parts fiche and look under "Front Brake Master Cylinder" you will see the switch. looks like around $8.22

"Clutch Master Cylinder" that one looks like it is $11.03

Hope that helps. Have a :croc: great ride today
