Tap-In Fitting Package

Starting at: $129.99

A tap in fitting is a way to add a hand lever to your stock foot brake system. The fitting installs in place of the stock foot brake reservoir inlet and the hand lever's reservoir becomes the source for the whole system.

There is a ball valve inside the stock foot brake master that closes the reservoir inlet when the foot pedal is pressed, but remains open when it is not activated, allowing fluid to be forced in from the hand lever. (this obviously means they cannot be used at the same time).

The advantages are that it is a low cost way to add a hand brake and gives options for bike models that there is no caliper bracket for. The disadvantage is less braking power than a larger caliper and/or rotor combination.

When using a tap in system, we recommend a 13mm or 14mm hand brake master to operate the foot brake caliper as they are typically smaller and hold less fluid.

Most Kawasaki and 06+ Suzuki are Circlip Style.
Most Pre 2006 Suzuki and Most Hondas are Teardrop Style.

The teardrop style has a small bolt in the narrow end of the teardrop shape to hold it in place. the circlip style have a circular circlip retaining ring holding the reservoir inlet.

Both styles have a rubber o-ring that will need to be removed from the oem inlet and installed on the tap in fitting.

INCLUDES: Tap in fitting and Brake Line with banjo bolts and crush washers

***YAMAHA motorcycles made after 2003 are known to NOT be compatible with these fittings. A different foot brake master would have to be used on these models.
