Default Parking brake elimination

As soon as I get my bike started, I am going to get rid of the parking brake. All I have to do is remove the wires and then plug the two at the handlebars together and block something off at the rear caliper...right?

Yes all you do is remove the brake cable and unplug the two sets of wires

Then plug these two together


Then just install a block off back at the caliper and your good to go

I just clipped the upper set of wires - the lower is for the clutch switch I think. I left my clutch switch intact to prevent silly accidents. Of course if you plug the brake switch wires together instead of the clutch switch you'll have a general "runs like crap" condition.

MontyCarlo is right. I did it the other way and had nothing but problems. When you place the plate on put some silicone or waterproof sealant on too.

:D or buy the Noss Machine one (off of the BT links page) that has a groove machined in it for an o-ring.

check that your clutch switch wires aren't the broken ones. The parking brake switch wires should NOT be shorted together. Clutch switch YES, parking brake NO. Make sure the parking brake wires aren't shorted to the bars, either.

The only reason to have that brake is for traveling, and you can accomplish the same thing by ziptying the brake lever on!

If you look at it, the clutch lever and switch is mounted below the brake lever and switch.

If the brake switch wires are broken, I would say to clip them off and tape them so they don't touch anything.

That will let water and dirt in there which isn't good. Same thing when removing the tail light.

It is pretty straight forward.

THere are two sets of wires leading to the clutch lever. One will have one white connector for both wires. Simply unplug it, if you are worried about moisture put a dab of RTV on. The other set of wires will have a pair of bullet connectors, they will plug into themselves. Plug them into themselves on the quad side. You may have to follow the wires down from the clutch handle under the hood.

The white connector is your clutch I believe, and the other wires should plug into each other, if they are not try it.
