Product Description

IMA Special Parts is very proud to launch its new product dedicated to the enthusiasts of the motorbike world: the TBS, an applicative system for thumb rear brake.

The Thumb Brake introduced a new bike riding style that offers great advantages, first of all a better braking feeling, given by the thumb. Recently this riding style became a popular trend for track enthusiasts, in fact, once learned the correct handling of the lever, the TBS lets you control the bike even while cornering and manage the bike power once out of the curve.

The strength of TBS is in the flexibility of its structure that allows multiple setting and adjusting possibilities to optimize the space exploitation on the bike (the evaluation of the spaces available on the bike for mounting the TBS has to be done by the customer before purchasing). Thanks to the 3 setups offered (Base, Racing, Complete) the thumb brake can be mounted either to the handlebar tube or the fork, and also optionally allows the reuse of the OEM rear master cylinder, avoiding additional costs (provided that the OEM master cylinder is among the supported models, see the system requirements scheme pictured).

The Base system does not include a master cylinder.  Relocate your OEM rear m/c to the adjustable thumb brake mount, and do away with a rear foot brake altogether. 

With the Racing version, the customer must move the rear OEM master cylinder to the front (installed on TBS) and install the special IMA master cylinder to the pedal. 

The Complete kit includes two IMA billet master cylinders, for both thumb and foot brakes. 

For people who also want to maintain the pedal brake in addition to the thumb brake, the Racing or Complete systems are suitable. Kits are available in B (bar mount) or F (fork mount).

Fork mount systems are available for most popular bikes.  Bar mount systems are mostly universal (assuming enough space on the left handlebar).

Also available is a reservoir kit, which contains a small genuine Brembo reservoir, a bendable 'ladybird' bracket from KurveyGirl, two Brembo spring clips and a length of Tygon brake tubing.

A HEL brake line can be ordered from us (please let us know what length and colour you will need).  These are made-to-order, and will take a couple of days to make.  Some bikes we can recommend a length, but others you will need to measure with a length of string.

Please contact us with any additional fitment questions.
