I've got a trx300ex, getting ready for a trail ride and need break light functionality. Am I correct in assuming that this model (93) only came with the tail light? Repair manual only talks about it being a tail light. Has anyone added a break switch inline so it is functional as both tail and break light?

Its not that hard of a up grade but you will need to be able to run the wiring from the handle bars and foot break to the light. and you may have to change the rear light also to hold a double element bulb instead of a single.

You will have to buy the switches and the wiring to make it work. You will need a new break leaver on the handle bars that has the switch in it and it may be the same for the foot break as well.

I agree^^^. I was looking at mine and it doesn't have a break switch. I guess I just had a park light LOL

Never tried such things. So bit hard to explain

They didn't come with brake lights in '93, just a taillight. You can modify it to be a brake light but you'll have to get parts off a newer model which may get costly. New pedal/handles with switches, new brake light, and the associated wiring. Not difficult, but is it worth it?

Every bulb on the outside of your car has a safety function. This may seem obvious, but think about how often you see somebody driving around with a tail light out, or with only one brake light. The fact is these little bulbs are often neglected. Many people don't replace them until they get pulled over and have to try to avoid the fine.
