I have recently bought a 1987 MZ etz 250 with disc front brake & drum rear, the problem is it has no brake switch for the rear brake..
can anyone tell me or send me a picture of where it should be fitted??
It has not got anything fitted on the drum so I presume it will be just a standed pull switch but where do I fit it!..
Any help or pics would be welcomed. .
Hi,I have 1987 ETZ300,the rear brakelight switch on mine is a tubular type and is fitted on a fork on the rear of the battery box.A long wire and spring is connected to a small lug on the brake pedal pivot.Mine also has a conection on the rear hub,but has a plug in it,and this is how it was when I bought it.
If yours doesn’t have any of these,I have seen other MZs at rallies that have the rear stoplight switch on the left side swinging arm on a bracket close to the rear brake cross shaft,with a spring connecting it to the arm of the cross shaft.
Hope you find this helpful. Terry.
Many thanks for your reply which I found very helpful, I now know where to fit the brake switch thanks to you!..
Only just recently joined the MZ riders club but already found it and it’s members very helpful.
