2007 Gear Up - Rear Brake Light Switch

Unread postby crewman » Wed Oct 25, 2017 8:11 pm

Hi Everyone,
The rear brake light switch, on my 2007 Gear Up is "pooched".
Any idea where to get a replacement?
Does anyone know of an alternate part that can be used?
Any and all responses, advise and direction greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Sean

Crewman did you get your switch? I saw another sticky on this site with lots of alternative part numbers. Let us know!

Sorry I didn't see this earlier.
Checking the Ural Catalogue, which only goes back to 2010 - http://live.uralcatalog.com/details/17301

If it is the same as part #4 Brake light pick-up just do a search for IMZ-8.102-17048

It looks like it is around $10 USD

You should put where you are located at so we can send you to the closest dealer/service that might have it.

That is the same switch for a 2007.

I've replaced mine twice. The first one was already broken when I got the bike. I took the switch apart and found the contact on the end of the plunger had broken off. I JB Welded it back on, sealed it back up and it lasted about two months. Took it apart and found the contact broken off again. I purchased a new switch from Holopaw and that one only lasted about four months.

Wanting a permanent fix for this, I finally settled on a Standard Motor Products brake light switch, model SLS66. It's a much beefier switch and has outlasted the stock ones.

Bear in mind that because this is a bigger, and longer switch, the mounting tab on the bike must be modified. The hole in the tab must be drilled and tapped for a 1/2-20 thread.
