Those are bad ass but super expensive. A friend who trail rides has them. They look like busted up fingers to me. LOL. There are a few other options too that are cheaper. Like this. It had a hydraulic master for the brake and a resviour cover that is for the cable clutch.

I completed the prototype of a mechanical thumb brake setup.

I am waiting on another type of lever that I will fit below the clutch lever, normal mounting position facing forward, for more typical left hand/finger squeeze, brake control such as on a mountain bike.

In the meantime, this setup, while FUGLY, does allow for a touch of rear brake while leaning off the bike away from the foot control, or as a wheelie control option.

Road test will occur after I have a better hand lever installed.

Final tweak.

Shimano Deore lever under the clutch lever. More precise control compared to thumb lever.

Those are the taps I mentioned in my first response. I made a bunch of these years ago. Your line will need to be long(they all are for this application). 13mm is the ideal size master. As I stated before I tried 16, 13, 17 etc and 13 is the sweet spot. Megura hc1 in a 13mm is the norm for this. They are about $200 new. The HC1 is designed to be used on the left as a hand brake. It is also radial design so you will be able to fit it all on the bars easier. The $60 "kit"is usually just the tap and seal from this site. You need to buy the line and master cylinder.

Great advice, thank you. Took me a while to understand all the issues involved, but I think I got it now.

I reached out to two vendors who put complete kits together using the components you recommend as well. The Megura 13mm HC1, tap and seal for the rear master reservoir port, and appropriate brake lines. I will see who offers the best value and give it a go.

You wont be happy with that axial mount master cylinder in that kit. You would be very happy with the magura hc1 on Amazon. The 13mm is what you want. If you want to go less expensive these are a couple hood options .

For now, I will be sticking with the mechanical setup forward facing left hand rear brake lever. It works, simple to maintain, costs next to nothing, and gives me the ability to adjust my exit lines when off the front brake and on the throttle.

Pics of final setup.

(Trying out rizoma style ebay mirrors.)

These are stunning mirrors and lever guards, but cannot find them in the USA.

That is hilarious. I just posted these mirrors(original) In our Facebook group. I just stumbled upon them. I like the look of them and give the same look as the original 1100/798 hand guard mirrors without the full guard. I like them

Left Hand Rear Brake in Action.

Look closely at the left fingers on the left hand shorty lever.

Holding a whisper of rear brake trail braking after the release of front brake trail braking, slightly past the apex, making sure direction line on exit with throttle roll on is as desired.
