If the bar style is the same the switch is OK as far as the derailleurs are concerned. There may, or may not be an issue of cable travel and brake response ratio but that's easy to test for.
Get a dry marker, squeeze the brake lever to engage the brake, and mark the wire where it exits from the adjuster, or fulcrum. relax the lever and see how far the mark moves. Test both bikes, trying to match how far the lever is moved, and compare the cable travel. If it's anywhere close you're in like Flynn. (or Flint if you like James Coburn movies)
