If you mean the actual switch and not the rear master cylinder then they are very very easy to remove and fix. It's two wires and two copper contacts. If you mean the master cylinder there are plenty of threads on here. I believe there are also some Chinese clones identical on eBay with a review on this forum. Either way, some searching will find what you need.

I would use normal 10w40 oil for motorbikes and wet clutches .
Why do you want to use fully synthetic which is more expensive and is not going to make your bike run any better ?
Can you put a picture up of the rear brake switch .
Pretty sure it should be easy to find a generic one which is all I have ever used on my 650's .
I have broken one or two whilst taking apart the foot lever in the past .They are flimsy as .

As long as it's for motorbikes ,yes, it will be fine  . Get the oil filter from Hyosung as well as the O rings .
The switches are pretty basic and cheapo normally so $10 sounds about right for a generic jobby .
This is the oil I used although it doesn't have to be part synthetic , just normal bike oil will do .
These seem to run best on cheapo fuel and lubricants  ;)

If I am not mistaken, the 125 is air cooled. Engine will be running hot. Conventional oil will start to breakdown earlier. Synthetic oil will not break down much at all which will avoid engine sludge and burnt oil in parts of you engine shortening its life. You can also go further between oil changes as long as the oil does not blacken from other contaminants.
