Interesting. It might work. I see the attractiveness of an independent hydraulic system, especially for the ease of installation. I just do not like the bicycle master cylinder and the thin hydraulic line.

I just got my Alta MX yesterday and got to play around on it a little bit. The bike is absolutely perfect and the LHRB is the only mod I really see myself doing to it. I did some searching on the forums and seen a couple different ways to do this, just want to be sure I go the best route.

As stated before, if you keep the pedal and install the LHRB, make sure to glue/weld that little plastic window on the RR master.
That applies only when you do not install the Clake insert seal correctly. But if you install it correctly then there is no problem.

And it does not apply to the OX-Hydra LHRB because it applies not a hydraulic but mechanical pressure on the rear master cylinder piston, just like the stock rear brake pedal, so the plastic window is not under any pressure.

I put the LHRB on my EX and ditched the brake pedal. I was comfortable doing this since I did the same thing to my CR250 when I installed a Rekluse clutch on it. I used parts off ebay designed for some kind of Chinese quad rear brake system because they were cheap. The master cylinder has a brake light switch and a lock lever for parking brake feature. On the Alta I had to modify the bend at the caliper fitting so the hose could follow the original routing and lie in the swing arm holder/bracket. I haven’t had any function/durability issues, but I was riding the CR250 at Manastash Ridge in the “Moonrocks” area and crashed and broke the master cylinder and had to ride all the way back to truck with only front brake...ohh the fun that was.

I never installed my clake adapter and rear pedal because I need a different length hose to make it work. Does anyone know where to get that hose?
