2007 K1200s rear brake switch

So, the brake light doesn't illuminate when the rear brake pedal is pressed, but works fine when the front lever pulled so I'm suspecting the rear micro switch..

I have the reprom disk but still can't work out where the switch is to see if needs cleaning or to replace it. I've removed the right footrest assembly and still can't see it

Anyone give me a clue...pictures would be even better.

Only the 2005-2006 models with Servo Assisted ABS have microswitches that turn the brake light on / turn the servo pump on.

There are no microswitches in the 2007 onward models.
The ABS module has an internal pressure switch thats activates the brake light.

Thats a pity...my bike had the ABS removed by a stealer 3 years owing to pump failure...

Which means it not going to be an easy fix....?
