My leg is bowed to the right, solution for rear brake?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am riding ktm exc 125 and I have problem with the rear brake - my right leg is bowed to the right, something like that (Middle picture):

What can I replace/change/adjust on my bike so it will be comfortable using the rear brake? Any solutions?

Thanks!

Maybe you can bolt a extention to it. Or buy or find an old one and have it welded if you cut it in half bend the one you buy and fab the part to fit next to the one on the bike and weld it up so you'll have double wide break lever.

Rekluse clutch with the rear brake mounted on the left side of the bars like a Mountain bike. Assuming you can get a Rekluse for your year model :thumbsup:

 

You can also get a "Clarke" lever. It has a clutch and brake in one unit. Pretty sure they're called "Clarke".

 

 

Here ya go. "Clake" I was close   :facepalm:

The Clake is expensive, but a very cool option. You can also just run a Left Hand Rear Brake with a short lever. The downside, you'll prolly have to run it at fairly steep down angle, so you can comfortably use the clutch. Pedal extention...A couple of viable options. Good luck.

Would something like this work?

I think that will work, how it's called? (So I can order it on Ebay). All of them will feet my KTM?

 

And thanks for the help guys, but I prefer to keep the rear brake on foot.
