    Dual clutch fluid reservoirs?


    I was watching this video and at :42 seconds, you can see two clutch fluid reservoirs mounted on the left handlebar, in addition to the brake fluid reservoir on right side.

    Anyone know what the second one does?!?

    I'm going to guess that it's a thumb brake. Take a look at the left hand controls and you can see what looks like a thumb lever below the grip.

    Yes. Lots of gp guys using it so they can get the bike to turn mid corner

    They have such a high Gforce I am sure keep both feet planted helps a ton....then to get the rear trail break out of the turn, allows a lot more throttle and faster exit

    LHRB - Left Hand Rear Brake. There are kits to do this, though I think some are just doing it custom. Some dirtbikers/trials riders and stunt riders install them.
