Sorry if this has been covered already but i now need to fit a thumb brake due to an old injury deteriorating not because i think i am Valentino Rossi! Any experiences or suggestions on which to buy, how to fit etc would be greatly appreciated thanks! I am a member of NABD (National association of bikers with disability) but dont want to use up one of their grants that may be more needed elsewhere and their site is not showing pictures at the moment! It must be temporarily disabled! lol

Tone, I've no idea about thumb brakes, but if you can find one that Demon Tweeks sell (look on their website) I can get a bit of discount there and then post it on to you 8-)

But i guess it's best to ask Wobbly himself!

Thats a real neat set up he has there, even with all the other stuff he has fitted it looks amazingly uncluttered just wondering about airbox clearance but obviously it does clear! i managed to get in touch with a retired chap that used to make the thumb brakes which sold on NABD and he may have the/some parts that i could use which is real handy plus i bought a brembo rear master cylinder off of a Ducati 1198 and its only about 65mm long which should look neat so i will continue this route at the moment but will have a chat to wobbly for sure, be interesting to hear his thoughts on it! You aint a bad bunch of chaps are you really! :rotfl:

Wobbly is a bike mech too so probably the best person to speak to for what your looking for Tone
