I found out that the rear brake light light switch on the TBS is stuck in the on position.

Does anyone know what other bikes might use the same switch?
It's a Nissin Master Cylinder, and I assume the switch is actuated by hydraulic pressure so there must be another source for the switch.

it's a standard automotive part, you should be able to get one from your local auto parts supplier.

This came up a while ago, the choice was between metric and (I think) pipe thread. The metric is the one you want.

I know this thread is fairly old, but I just replaced my rear brake pressure switch this morning. This is what I needed fro my 97 Thunderbird and I am guessing it is the same for all.

Hopefully this helps so you can make fewer trips to the parts store than I did.

I got mine from DennisKirk Part number 19-3939. I live close enough to drive there a couple times in the same day. It is not a Triumph part, they are just sold by thread size, not by specific manufacturer application. A universal fit. I also bought the boot part number 27-1523 to dress it up and connected it into the existing wiring. Very Simple.

However, according to Slinky you can get an automotive one. As long as you ask for one with the specifications I listed you should be good. You could also bring your broken one in to compare.

I hope this helps.
