This is what Matt and I have on ours for high/low beam and horn button.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-H...204e41&vxp=mtr

The CRF headlight is already high/low beam...just had to be wired to the hi/low switch.

Does the rear brake light have "dual" brightness? In other words running and Brake light? If not get a light from Chad with license plate bracket.

I have a horn I can donate to the cause!

And not sure if yours has the brake light switch? I have a banjo bolt style pressure switch.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycles-...46ee16&vxp=mtr

Anyways...some reading up for ya!

When all the parts come in....we'll have a gathering at Chad's shop!!
If you have to order the headlight/brakelight switch, get it ordered NOW! They come from China and it takes a while.

I sent chad a text/email giving him the green light to order the wheels and brake kit and probably a rear sprocket for street riding.

I went ahead and placed a $1.00 bid for that hi-low/horn switch just now.. lol


The WR headlight is just like the crf headlight. Just have to wire in the switch. I'm not certain about the headlight but i believe it's the same where I would just need to add a pressure switch. I'll gladly take the donated horn.. lol

For the brake light you just run a positive wire from your battery to one side of the hydraulic brake switch and the other side of the switch goes to the extra wire on the tail light. You should probably put a fuse in line, but I didn't.
I'm a gambling man by nature, and I'm not racing the thing in the baja 1000. The hydraulic brake switch was a tight fit, I didn't think it was going to spin on at first. I Dremeled a little of the master cylinder to give me more room.

I read on supermoto junkie that some people have issues with adding front brake switches and them functioning properly. Don't remember the specifics. Maybe something about applying enough pressure to engage the circuit/light?

Rear brake switch does seem like it would be the easiest to add.
