You have two choices...One choice is way cheaper than the other.....

Forget about finding a 6mm banjo bolt brakelight switch.....There are none


Use this ...Its easier.........

In order to get the X18 type to fit the X15 you need to drill and retap the X15 caliper to the same 10mm thread as the x18 or modify the whole rear assembly to work on the x15..........On my X15 I went the switch w/spring route.........Good luck

My break pedal has that slack in it like all the bikes do....do u think it will triger the break swich to go on an off while riding ???

Not if you mod the brake pedal..........Remove the nylon locknut from the footpeg pivot and stick it on the brake actuator rodend that goes into the master cylinder...leave 3-4 threads sticking up from the nut.....All the slop will be removed and the brake will work alot better.........

I need to put a lock nut on the break Mandrell and about to the bottom of the thread you say??? Im not understanding...... didn't you make a thread on how to fix this???
I made a post about it...I dont remember making a thread........

Remove the rear brake master from the pedal bracket mount.........

Look at the brake activation rod on the pedal pivot assembly.......The rod that activates the plunger for the master cylinder has threads like a screw,,,M6 threads........

You screw a chinese M6 locknut on the threads leaving 2-3 threads poking from the top of the nut..........

Then you reassemble the brake master assembly and test it out to make sure the brakes arent grabbing and the slop has been removed to satisfaction because the rounded crown shape top on the nut doesnt allow the rod to bottom out inside the plunger and fits the plunger contour perfectly..................
