Bob,

Oh that's what the difference is. I just used the FL switch with the spring provided (for the FL) & it works OK. I may be having to press the brake lever harder than I might with a stock 125 switch & spring but I don't know any better. Thanks. (I got a kit NOT chromed at a swap meet for $2.00 when the FL rider went to chrome. We both got (closer to) what we wanted. Good times.

Just a note here from having been there, done that. There are brakelight switches out there that look like the lightweight version but are Big Twin. The difference is the internal spring. The lightweights had a weaker spring so the 'pull' was easier and would work with the factory supplied parts. If you get the Big Twin one you'll either have to beef your activation linkage up a bit or disassemble the switch (like I did) and put in a lighter spring.

For the taillight and fender, do you want stock? Taylor Classic has real good reproduction fenders, he might have used you'll have to ask him. look on the parts page for links I've not heard bad things about the venders posted there.

About the switch as seen in the pic - previous posting, If you are going to pick one up at "the swap meet" get the one that turns on when pulled out. (Some are on when released.) They look the same. Request pull for on from a vender also most sell for the application and know but some might not know there are different ones.

The pics on member bike page show the brake light switches of many "Super 10"s. Though there are only pics of the whole side of "Super 10"s these seem to be the same as the earlier bikes I'm familiar with.

The switch clamps to the lower rear frame tube like this: {http://harleyhummerclub.org/members/mac-chandler/blackexhaust.jpg} (members page mac chandlers 125). This is on a "125 modified" and similar to all I've ever seen. For my 125s I bought a new reproduction switch for a FL but had to make a new tube clamp because it came with a wrap for a larger diameter tube.

does anyone have pictures or know how the brake light should look on a Super 10? I just got this bike and want to register it but need a brake light and fender. I also need what ever makes it turn on when braking and pics of how it should look when on. Thanks.
