Does this exist?

Hey, you ever think "I got it". "I got an invention that is worth producing." So I had this idea about a clutch and rear brake lever combo. I thought i would look to see if anything like it was made before I bought a new Lambo. One minute latter on google I found this.

Does anyone know if they make this for a hydro clutch bike like my Husky TXC310?

That looks great for offroading too. I hate keeping my foot on the back brake when I want to waddle.

Curious to see the answer about hydraulic clutches. Great find!

Rekluse has some left-hand brake kits as well: http://www.rekluse.com/brake.shtml

I found this and I think it is cool. What do you guys think? It is a lot of money! I found a guy that built one himself with an old front brake lever but it was huge and I don't think you could get the power you need with just your thumb on a DIY system. The link above does look promising. I think it would be useful on fast rocky desents where you have a hard time staying on the pegs as well as wheelie where your feet are too angled to hit the rear brake lever. Sometimes it is hard for me to slid the rear wheel in right hand turns because I have to debate foot on the peg and braking or foot off the peg no brake. This looks like it would solve all of that. I know if I did an auto clutch conversion I could just use a normal rear brake handle but I love having a clutch. I want to play on my bike an the clutch helps that.

There are some companies that make thumb brake kits for the sport bikes. lot of stunter types use them so they can control wheelies when their foot isn't on the foot pegs.

Did a little google seach...Looks like that GP Tech is the most popular one...
