Rear brake light switch adjustment

How the heck do you get your fingers in there to adjust that damn thing?

Yeah it's a real pain in the arse if you don't have tiny hands but you can do it. Everything is finger tight fortunately. I came in from behind above the swing arm.

thanks guys I'll give it a try tomorrow. I'm almost wondering if just using a zip tie to connect the spring to the pedal would be easier....

In the past I have used a small key ring to extend the spring on a bike that had the wrong spring and the switch could not be adjusted enough to make up the difference.
