Side car brake

Go across to the "Hacks" section, plenty of talk about this over there.

I'm thinking electric could be a bit severe...lots of pics of my brake setup in hacks.

basically small jap setup...hydraulic brake with a manual handbrake in one unit.

I switched to using those temporary spare wheels from cars - the so-called Space-saver spares.
Several reasons, but mostly: 1 ) the tyres are very narrow and as the sidecar wheel's only there to keep the bodywork off the ground, I didn't want or need the sideways drag of a wide-square tyre a metre to the side of the bike. 2) They are cheap - most scrapyards will give them away unused, or accept a slab for about 4 of them. And 3) they're also very light and carrying a spare space-saver spare doesn't ...errr... take up much space.....

Yeah +1

Got a holden hub with the disc turned down to 10mm. Then fitted a ZZR front caliper. Works fine..

Never been a fan of sidecar brakes, never had them on either outfit previously, do a token job on the next one though, just to keep the RTA happy?

You could use a rear caliper of some of the Jap ATV's they incorporate a handbrake and hydaulics in one unit.

I played TEC on the chair for a large group of sportsbike riders on the WE to help out....

farq it was fun trying to keep up (and some times backing off)


350km on the chair in the twisties is worth about 700km on a 2 wheeler but so much fun.


I am taking the boy along next month

Great report

That is an awesome outfit. I was hoping to go with electric brake on the chair. Not hydraulic.
