New handbrake from full throttle.....

So what is it? Well it's the product of everything we've learned making hydraulic components and at the same time the answer to various complaints people have voiced over the four years we've been in the stunt industry. The high points are below, more information follows and the pictures are at the bottom. Give us a call toll free at 877-785-7282 and let us help you step up your game in 2008!

This hand brake is:

Variable Ratio

One model fits all sport bikes

No modification to the rear master cylinder is nescessary

No reservoir on the bar! (the stock res. on the rear master supplies the entire system)

Single caliper, no additional rear caliper is needed

Full use of the foot brake is retained

The hand brake can be used while still applying pressure to the foot brake

the handbrake lever and the clutch lever can be mounted extremely close together

every pivot point is on bearings

Controllable Herculean power at your fingertip!

It is mounted on the fork to remove it from the vulnerable position on the handlebar (in the event of a crash) and for more options regarding the placement of the clutch lever and the hand brake lever in relation to one another. A mechanical clutch lever is much easer to fit underneath another mechanical clutch than an entire master cylinder is. It is also much less expensive to replace than a Brembo master cylinder should your bike come down (even at slow speed) on the left hand side.

What makes it variable ratio?

The mechanical lever is linked to the master cylinder with a top quality clutch cable. There are 4 points at which the cable can enter the master cylinder, which correspond to four points at which the cable end is retained. The first setting is slightly less powerful than a Brembo 16 x18 brake master for people that want a firmer feel at the lever. The next 3 positions are each incrementally more powerful. Most will run the brake with the cable in the 2nd or 3rd position as you have a light enough lever pull to be highly effective but still have enough feedback and lever pressure to tell what you are doing. The fourth position is too much of a mechanical advantage to be practical for most applications, but I'd rather give people the option for excess than have them think they are missing out on some additonal potential!

I would rather use the tried and true method anyday I mean after all isnt a dual caliper setup what they are trying to recreate anyway? and its almost the same price as buying the HO Hey combo......


http://www.hoheydesigns.com/f4i_brackets.html alot of people swear by these at Stuntwars

p.s. I wonder if these new Full throttle adapters ones will leak like the old ones did?

i have a question about the dual caliper setup from hohey. is it just for more rear brake control? or does it help with stopping performance also? i dont stunt at all but performance is always good.

its stunt only. if you want better stopping then get better callipers, master, pads, rotor, lines, and rider skill.

well the way id do it is to have 2 lines going into the back caliper with a banjo bolt that can take 2 hoses. and have them each going to a seperate master.

about the breaking of the mastercylinders umm id have to sit and play with all the junk in the back to figure that one out

That wont work becuase the pressure will transfer to the opposite master instead of the caliper.....

hmm if you say so. i guess you would know more about it than me

what about running the hose from the front brake into the rear master cylinder where the resevior is supposed to go?

I also think that pressure will transfer unless you put a checkvalve.
