Where is the best place to get a replacement rear brake switch?

Try squirting some electronic contact cleaner and work the brake handle. Some members also use WD-40.

WD-40 worked good for me in both brake levers, the turn signal switch and all the key locks.

Partszilla has done well for me, if the WD40 doesn't work and you want an electrical switch cleaner make sure it's safe for plastics.

I had a brake switch failure. Actually both switches failed, though probably not at the same time. It was only discovered during a group ride when the guy behind me complimented me on never using my brakes on a twisty down hill ride. Evidently not even at the stop sign at the bottom of the run.

Once returned to base we meter tested everything and discovered the two failed switches. Given the circumstances it is unnerving to think that if the left brake switch totally failed it would have prevented me from starting the scoot. So now I’ve taken to carrying that left side brake/start switch as a spare.

Now I’m curious wether the left switch could also fit in place of the right brake switch? Electrically the same but physically different?

Previous bike brake switch failure: Cleaned up with WD40. Fixed it.

Current SWing rear brake switch failure. Started to take apart and found one wire was not connected. Connected wire and it's working fine.
