    LOL. Um, it is like 75% of your stopping power (100% for some people). You don't want to mess that up with a cheap brake lever that binds/breaks/flops/mushy. 60 mph with a jacked up front brake is no bueno.

    Does rsc make a brake lever in addition to the clutch lever? I don’t see it on thesicshop.com

    It doesn't appear that they do: https://righteousstuntmetal.com/domestic/store.html

    Usually stock dirt bike levers will bend the first time you crash and then break the second time. I haven't dropped the grom yet, I'm not a hardcore stunter, just a guy who likes to do wheelies. Putting a chinese lever on your bike might cause instant death, probably not though.

    Sportbike Track Gear has a good video about a defective MSZ lever that would have caused and accident and maybe a death. Check it out.

    Why rely on cheap shit for brakes? It makes no sense.

    Move your controls in far enough that the bars take the hit first. The stock lever will probably take more hits than some Ebay ones. Put a subcage and axle sliders on it also. Be worried about some crash protection then go ride it. One thing you'll learn is that there's no right one right way to build a stunt bike. You're gonna drop it, shits gonna get bent, broken, etc. Plan on buying a few more sets of those bars because they will get smashed and bent eventually.

    I understand that you wanna build it the right way but honestly you need to make sure the bike can live in a wheelie and take a hit.... everything else is secondary. And what I mean by that, make sure it doesn't starve of oil (oil pump mod) and make sure you can pick it back up and ride away after you fling it across the parking lot.

    Not a matter of if you hit the pavement, but rather when you do.

    Especially when stunting requires a ton of brake use...

    I think that bike has a radial master cylinder. I'm not sure if you would have that problem on a grom.

    Junk companies make junk. The MSZ levers are known for having a lot of slip on the Grom and I'm sure they don't QC well enough to stop defects like that on the Grom.

    Hell, if your life is only worth $30 then hit up Amazon for the junk and they'll ensure you can be risking your life in only 2 days!

    The rectangle lid type of master cylinders don't have that rotating piece inside the lever.
