    Thumb brake ?

    Has anyone fitted one yet. From memory I don't think so.
    If you have been looking, what have you found.
    I want to fit one over winter along with the L7 rear wheel change.

    Ah thats over double the speedycom price which comes with brembo master cylinder.
    I notice the alpha has to have the abs disabled. Is that the case with all tjumb brakes as a mate who has fitted them did mention disabling abs but i didn't want to.

    I have Alpha racing fitted.

    It's rebranded IMA with rebranded HEL lines. If you buy all bits individually it will come out much cheaper.

    Does it need the ABS deleted? I assume that's rear wheel but you'd turn that off anyway...

    I think if you opt for not having a pedal/second master, you can keep abs. But I'm not 100%. Might need to find a brake line that is right size to wire into ABS pump.

    This is IMA kit. Alpha also adds HEL lines and logos.
