This listing is for a cable operated left hand rear brake (LHRB) kit designed to be used in addition to your standard rear brake pedal & standard clutch lever to give far more control in extreme situations such as steep decents.

............

Can be fitted to the following 2 & 4 stroke KTM enduro bikes that I know of:

EXC models 125 to 530cc (2008 - 2013)

Will also fit the Husabergs of similar age, if in doubt give me a call.

............

Can be used on bikes with or without a Rekluse clutch. Very straightforward to fit with no need to alter the standard hydraulic brake system.

Gives far more feel & control than the rear brake pedal, you won't believe how much you'll use it!

............

The brake lever is a proper off road motorcycle high quality forged alloy assembly that I have found to be the best fit either above or below the clutch lever.

The cable has been custom made in the UK to the exact specification required, it has a heavy duty outer winding with a marine grade stainless steel inner cable & a Teflon liner for super smooth operation. 

All nuts, bolts & washers are A2 grade stainless steel.

The custom made brackets have been CAD manufactured & laser cut in ultra-corrosion resistant 304 grade stainless steel with an Oilite self-lubricating bronze bush, they are designed so that they are not vulnerable to accident damage or at all restrictive when riding.

I personally finish every upper bracket off by hand to guarantee the fit & alignment is exactly right.

**** Please note ****

In order to have the correct rear brake lever travel this system removes some of the free play from the rear brake pedal. This has no detrimental effect on the braking system but does take a bit of getting used to.

It should also be stated that this kit requires a degree of mechanical understanding & aptitude to fit so any use is entirely at the owners own risk.

 

 

Some of you may want to know how the idea for this came about - for those who don't please skip the blue bit.

............

I own a 2012 300 EXC with a Rekluse clutch.

The Rekluse is fantastic but I sometimes found myself in sticky situations because the rear wheel doesn't lock up when the engine stalls - not good when you're stuck on a steep hillside trying to get the bike turned round after a failed hill climb attempt.

I prefer to ride the bike back down the hill, not race it to the bottom.

An additional rear brake lever on the bars seemed the ideal solution.

That started me thinking about other times when a left hand rear brake lever could be useful .....
like when you need to put your right foot down on a steep decent - not the best time to lose rear braking power
or when you have to walk the bike down a bit that's too steep to ride - much more controllable with both brakes!

After experiencing the benefits of the Rekluse I was eager to find anything that would make life easier & enhance my riding pleasure & capability as well as reducing physio costs.

A quick look on-line revealed how expensive & limited the options were so, being a typical tight Scots git, I had a play about with some ideas myself.

All the solutions I found were hydraulic but the idea of a cable operated system appealed because of its simplicity & lack of bulk for fitting an additional lever on my already crowded handlebars.

The first prototype worked so well that I decided to put it into production & this kit is the final result of many months of testing & improving to the point that I feel it works perfectly.

What really surprised me was how much I used it, not only on the extreme stuff but virtually all the time, I now hardly ever use the foot brake.

I regularly watch people trying to control their bikes on steep descents, locking up their rear wheels all over the place in a vain attempt to feel for traction with clumpy boots & a foot pedal ....... or wiping out completely when they have to put a foot down & only have the front brake to control the bike.

You won't believe how much easier & safer it is with another lever.

Many thanks to my riding buddies who have helped me test the various prototypes on their bikes & endured my constant babbling about how great my new left hand rear brake kit is  :O)
