I think this could be interesting:
As a handicap rider, I am not able to shift gears with my left foot and have much dificulty using the rear brake with my right foot, so the AT with DCT was the perfect option for me. Besides, I changed the rear brake from the foot to the handlebar just like an scooter and everything worked great. Now I can ride with confidence and go places never thought possible due to my limited movement legs but now my life has changed. The AT is a great machine!!!!

They did everything for me at the Honda dealership where I bought the bike.
They used a clutch and hidraulic pump from a Honda CB 900 and were very creative to place everithing to look as it was original parts.
I believe any Honda dealership can do the job.
It works great, I even tested a hard braking and the ABS worked just fine.

The people who did the work for me at the Honda dealership relocated the parking brake to the right side of the bike and fixed it to the Givi crash bars so it is very handy for me to use it with my right hand after I park.
They even put a new wire harness to conect the parking brake in its new location in a way that the parking brake light in the dashboard works perfectly.

i did a similar thing to my dirt bike, adapter a second clutch leaver with remote reservoir tucked in underneath.
i had a hydraulic hose place make me up an adapter banjo that allows for both use of the foot brake and the hand leaver simultaneously and or separately ..

ill hunt for some pics and post them if i find them...

happy riding

Man, I think this would be nice to have when doing off-road. There are many times when going down a steep, rough patch you need to stand and itís difficult to use the rear brake. Having the ability to use it with your hand would allow you to keep control with your feet solid on the pegs.

Thanks for sharing! Safe riding.

This is why Honda should have a rear brake on the bars option for the DCT and its not as if they have to do much more in terms of engineering having got most of the basic parts in production for the DCT Scoot they make (Integra?)
