Thread: Brake setup ?

  1. #1

    Default Brake setup ?

    Probably a dumb question but I want to run my rear brake off a hand lever and master cylinder. Will it have enough power to work the rear caliper? I am only running a rear brake and for clutch jockey shift like the idea of freeing my other foot you know for red lights and that kinda stuff lol

    It's not really a dumb question.........

    It would work just ok but that's not the best way to go....... I'm not being a smart ass here....... What you need to do is learn how to ride it with the normal setup........ It's not that hard once you get use to it..........

    A small caliper for the hand lever and leave the foot brake alone is a common solution. I like using the Indian Four clutch pedal that latches down. Mountain roads and lots of drunken neighbors make a way to hold it on a incline, ready to go important!

    Interesting about the Indian four.

    How does the latch function? That could be worth copying.
