The Cleanest Rear Brake Set Up Around!

Brake PackageThe photo to the left shows an assembled view of our production rear brake caliper and mount setup with a slick little addition of the built in rear tail light activation switch. Using this setup keeps your wiring to a bare minimum and reduces the need for additional fluid connection points (makes bleeding your brakes far easier as well.)

For this setup you’ll need the following parts:

.

How To Wire It:

You can follow the above diagram running wires from the L TERMINAL and RED TAIL LIGHT WIRE as shown above and this will give you a switch to light your brake up ONLY when key is turned on.

*Note: This setup DOES NOT light up when applying the front brake. most states only require one brake to light switch but check with your local DOT before committing to your final layout.

A Quick Look – How Front Motor Mount Should Look

DSC04088Currently we are not producing this part, but a lot of you out there have been stumped by what to do about fabbing your own. The mount is made of 3/8 thick steel and resembles an ITALIC LETTER “T”. You’ll note the block found on the lower part of your weapon, nemesis, or speedster frame is shown here mounted behind the plate on Picture 1 for example purposes. Normally it would be welded to the frame.DSC04077

To fabricate your own version of this mount, firmly mount the motor to the back plate as it should be, then align the front block to the flat parts of the motor’s lower front mounts. Use poster board to trace out the shape shown on the left and mark the positions of the holes.

Lastly, cut out two matching plates from 3/8ths steel, drill out the hole positions, and mount up the motor using standard sportster mounting hardware or your own version for a custom look.
