    You sure about that?

    On the 550, the front brake light switch just plugs into this hole in the master cylinder/lever perch; you might not recognize it for what it is:

    The green arrow is pointing to one of the two locking tabs on the switch.

    The red dotted circle is the location of the "latch hole."

    Lower 48 in general. Otherwise Central Mitten.
    With the bike being "laid down" it is very possible that a non-stock master cylinder was placed on the bike. Check it against your parts bike.

    A pic might help to fully understand the it is not there part.
