R&G footrests - installation problems

Hello all,

I got R&G footrests for my R8. I installed the left one without any problems, but the right one is giving me grey hair.

I cannot figure out how to attach the ball bearing at the base of the brake cylinder so that the base assembly can be attached to the frame AND align the brake cylinder so that it can be screwed to the base assembly as well. To me it either looks like the hose from the brake cylinder to brake pads is too short, or I cannot screw the ball bearing deep enough ... have anyone had similar issues?

The other question is: how to attach the brake pedal spring that keeps the pedal up? And where to hook up the brake light switch? The instructions that came with the set are useless.

Without seeing it I can't guess what the problem might be. Do they state that the rearsets are designed to work with the OEM brake line?
Aftermarket rearsets generally don't come with provision for a brake light switch. You can put a pressure switch banjo bolt in though.
