Everything from kits to sticks on the internet. Very useful on these machines, keeps trans from "binding" when parking on a hill, makes tieing it down on a trailer very easy, and safe for towing because the transmission isn't "loaded" up on the park pawl its in neutral instead of park.

just ordered mine from springbreakthingy
FYI - I don't think that brake works with the trail/ sport. I could be wrong though.

Nice! I remember when they were looking for people here to try their first model, but we quickly learned that only fit the 1000. I did not know they had one for the trail.

I have the SakBrake, works awesome, prefer a hand brake than foot controlled. AND would buy it today, since he has helped me and many others with all kinds of tips and points on this forum, that counts big time to me for supporting a product.

i'm hoping i'm getting it...starting to have my doubts...i'm already getting accessories ordered/delivered to the dealer for install (oem tire/rim, street legal kit, side mirrors, etc)...was hoping to get a hand brake ordered but not available from anywhere i could find...

I used hockey stick for awhile.. Any light tubing works great so you can wedge corner of brake pedal into it and then find good anchor point in floor/seat base area. Until you set it on a hill nose up, then catch it with your boot when exiting, then it gets interesting! That's when I got the Sak brake. Will watch for your big announcement soon!
