Hi, I have a new wiring loom for my D7 Bantam and it has wires going to a stop switch, is this a separate switch I need to get or do they mean the switch on the headlamp?? any ideas, thanks.

It`s a separate switch that bolts to the pillion rest,facing forwards with a spring attached via a small clamp to the rear brake rod,that pulls the plunger out of the switch enough to cause both contacts within said switch to make contact and create a circuit to your rear stop lamp,thus illuminating it....at least I think that`s how my D7/10/14 bikes are set up,without actually going out in the rain to the lock-up to check.

Do you mean a brake light switch as in Blue's reply above, or a kill switch as on a modern bike? (I use the term modern loosely). There is no kill switch on a Bantam though unless you fit one yourself, you just turn off the ignition switch

Current bikes......1958 D5, and a 77 Suzuki GT250 being rebuilt. I have a 74 Kawasaki KH400 in the queue, along with a 58 Tiger Cub and a 1980 Honda CB400N. A 1978 Honda CB125S on the road and  I currently ride a 2011 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster

Hi, I have been fitting a new wiring harness ( the two headlamp Lucas version). I agree with the method of fitting the brake switch. Strangely my brake light comes on with the light switch when switched on , and no other light works ! I have fitted a new battery and checked all the connections. Any ideas as to why this happens?

the engine  has  to be   running   for  the  headlamp  to work    using   a   WYPAC   loom   so  i  think  you  have to  go  throw  the  system  to check  it  all  out          ,,,,none  of  the  3   D7   wiering   looms  from    Wypac   let  the  haedlamp  work   unless  the  motor  is  running
