Lever and parking brake. So that's like a bicycle, one brake each hand?
On some pictured is looks like the parking break piston connects directly to the brake cable. I guess this is to save weight but I doubt it has any more stopping power than required by a handbrake.A Honda rep at the NEC show said that the parking brake was "out of comfortable reach" so people transitioning from a regular manual to a DCT wouldn't slide down the road if they forgot they didn't have a clutch. A bit like the first time you drive an automatic car after using manuals for years and skid to a halt when you go to change gear...
So I guess they aren't expecting people to use it when in motion. I wonder if the parking brake has different pads that might not like being regularly used...who knows?!
@SvendusG'day Nice People's, Here is a link to my 2020 Honda CRF1100 Africa Twin Adventure Sport ES DCT Left Hand Rear Brake Modification. I had done the same previously to my 2017 AT DCT. Hope you enjoy. Peter.www.africatwinforum.com
I have some of those levers on my DCT, but what part did you order or modify on the parking brake? The part that the parking brake locks into is a different thickness and shape from the OEM version. I tried to use the left hand lever, but it's for clutch and not a DCT. Thanks.
