Stop with Confidence: A Guide to Hand Brake Package Installation

Understanding Hand Brake Package Installation:

Cost: $450 (This is an estimated total cost, including parts and labor)

The $450 cost for a hand brake package installation reflects the various components and labor involved. Here's a breakdown of what's typically included:


  • Dual caliper bracket: This bracket allows the additional caliper for the hand brake to be mounted on the rear wheel disc.
  • Rotor, caliper(s): An additional rotor (disc) and caliper are needed for the hand brake system.
  • Hand brake master cylinder: This is the component that the hand lever actuates to create hydraulic pressure for braking.
  • Hand brake stainless line: A high-pressure stainless steel line connects the master cylinder to the hand brake caliper.
  • Foot brake stainless line (sometimes included): In some cases, the installation might involve replacing the existing foot brake line with a stainless steel line for improved performance.


  • Installation of all hand brake components, including the bracket, caliper, master cylinder, and lines.
  • Bleeding the hand brake line to remove any air bubbles from the hydraulic system, ensuring proper braking function.
  • (Optional) Bleeding the foot brake line (if a new line is included).
  • Lube and adjust the clutch cable (sometimes included as a courtesy service).

The Benefits of a Hand Brake Installation:

  • Enhanced Braking Control: A hand brake provides additional control over the rear wheel, allowing for smoother and more controlled braking, especially in technical riding situations or when carrying a passenger.
  • Improved Safety: Having two independent braking systems (hand and foot) can be a lifesaver in case of a foot brake malfunction.
  • Reduced Reliance on Foot Brake: A hand brake can help reduce fatigue on long rides by allowing you to share the braking effort between your hand and foot.
  • Stunting Potential (for experienced riders only): For experienced stunt riders, a hand brake offers greater control for advanced maneuvers (use caution and practice in a safe environment).

Additional Considerations:

  • Shop Expertise: Choose a qualified motorcycle repair shop with experience installing hand brake systems.
  • Hydraulic vs. Cable-Operated Systems: Hand brakes can be hydraulic (like most foot brakes) or cable-operated. Discuss the pros and cons of each system with a qualified mechanic to determine the best choice for your motorcycle.
  • Legality: In some regions, hand brakes might not be street-legal. It's crucial to check your local regulations before installation.

Invest in Braking Confidence:

Adding a hand brake to your motorcycle, for an estimated cost of $450, can significantly improve your braking control and overall riding experience. By having the work done by a qualified professional, you can ensure a safe and functional installation that enhances your motorcycle's capabilities.
