Anyone fitted a rear thumb brake successfully? I am struggling with my air tubes.

Take it off and try the brake. Get used to it if you can and if you think it helps then cut the tube. Won’t hurt anything except he looks.

Thanks, I have a local guy who has all the BSB moulds and actually has one with a tube made for the thumb brake. It's the large bore one so may splash out on it.

I tried using a GP Tech billet handlebar style thumb brake (Pic 1) on my RC51 but it fit awkwardly in the space between the left clip-on and the dash panel when the bars were moved toward full right lock.

I was however able to successfully fit an old GP Tech cast master style thumb brake (Pics 2 & 3).
Works perfectly.

What style/brand of thumb brake are you trying to use Wannabe?
