The wires going into my rear brake light switch is worn. Would appreciate if someone can advise how to dismantle as well as replacement part number. Cannot find it anyware. Not looking for the earlier cylinder type switch.

Fixed the title for you!!

Fixed the title for you!!

I believe the part number is 61311243403 "Clutch Switch". Access as I recall is after you take off the lever...get to the screw on the other side.

Thanks Kurt

Seems to be used as a "clutch switch" on other models as you rightly indicated and probably the reason I couldn't find it... will give it a go.

According to the fiche, the

According to the fiche, the same part is used on the clutch lever, so I guess they just gave it the one name. Who knows...the action of the switch is the same, open/close with the movement of the hand lever.

There's a tiny little phillips head screw holding the switch to the lever perch. If you loosen the perch's pinch screw and rotate the assembly, you will be able to peer between the wires and handlebar and see the screw. Depending on the bend of the handlebars, it could be necessary to remove the perch from the handlebar to remove the switch.

When used on the clutch side, this is the switch which allows you to activate the starter without shifting to neutral, just by disengaging the clutch.
