RACETORX THUMB BRAKE – BRED TO RACE
Vendor: EDR Performance
Available: In stock
Racetorx Thumb brake
Made from T6 billet aluminium, Hard anodised in either silver or black, Hardware including pivot pins and pushrods are made from Ti 6Al-4V Titanium. The thumbscrew provides a detent ball for precision and a 13mm Brembo master cylinder for reliability and perfect thumb pressure with the thumb lever providing a knurled finish for grip. Handlebar fitment is the standard 22mm which 95% of bars are and in the coming months, other mounting options will come available. This wonderful kit provides 4 points of movement to give the best position to suit you! Comes complete with our GP reservoir tube kit in a colour of your choice. To complete the kit you can either go directly to your rear calliper or you can have the rear foot master cylinder in conjunction. You can order specific lengths of braided lines from either Venhill or Goodridge. If you decide to have the rear foot pedal usable in conjunction you'll need to fit a "Junction Valve" to your rear master cylinder which feeds into the reservoir port. This is a very simple layout and we are happy to assist where we can.
THE THUMB BRAKE KIT IS UNIVERSAL TO ALL BIKES.
11mm Master cylinder for single cylinder 125cc-500cc motorcycles (supermoto, motocross, trails & road)
13mm Master cylinder for 2, 3 & 4 cylinder 500cc - 1400cc motorcycles (Road, track, superbike and adventure)
The Racetorx Thumb Brake has additional thumb paddles for personal preference, This is listed in the drop-down menu. You can also purchase the paddles separately here - https://racetorx.co.uk/product/rtx302/
when using your foot in a road/race boot or a motocross boot you can not gauge pressure, with your thumb you can gauge the pressure through the paddle, this means more control breaking in a corner on a race track, angle of the bike in the air on a motocross track, on a trails bike in a technical route and even wheelie control on a stunt bike.
We use www.Venhill.co.uk for our braided lines. If you know the length required please inform us and we can update out (Venhille braided line list) order it in directly and update the website so you can order all parts from us as a bulk kit. This is - www.racetorx.co.uk/product/venhill
A lot of people ask What is a thumb Brake?
These are a universal kit for the majority of motorcycles, Road bikes, race bikes, adventure bikes and even motocross bikes.
We have the most adjustable thumb brake on the market and even then our kit on some bikes can touch fairings, tanks or frames, This being said with the adjustability you can work around it nicely most of the time.
Motorcycles with Handle bars have the most clearance whereas if using clip-ons you can have some challenges, the Ducati V4 Penagale has no room and the fairing would need some modding, Ducati V2 Penagale is similar with more clearance but still touches at full lock.
Adventure bikes. motocross bikes and streetfighter bikes all have clearance.
The list would be endless but to give some idea of bike styles which our kits are fitted to so far-
