Honda ruckus front brake arm- they are longer and will give you more leverage and greater stoping power. They fit right on a 50 with no modifications and are only like $8 or $10 bucks each at any Honda dealer. I put one one the front of my 50 and noticed a huge difference right away. A 50 stunt dual rear brake arm is great for the same thing and can accept a rear hand brake.

lol, this is for my kids, I couldnt bend my knee enough to hit the back brake, so I grabbed front brake and rolled through the stop sign lol.. I just ordered training wheels so hopefully I can install for the kids to ride while im recovering from surgery.

You enjoying it!? +1 on the Ruckus brake arm tip. Combine that with Kitaco or similar pads and you got an awesome set of brakes.

I'll have another 50 with an 88 kit for sale today or tomorrow for anyone that wants to join him! haha
