I am working on a whizzer kit with auto clutch build on a bike with worksman drum brakes front and rear. I'd really like to use the control setup that whizzer provides, but the brake levers don't pull enough cable to fully engage the brakes. Any body else have this problem?

I can get long pull brake levers from worksman, any suggestions for an alternate throttle control?

Thank you.

Hi I have aftermarket Throttle assemblys, but are you sure you took the slack out of the brake?

Thanks for the quick response,

I took all the slack out of the brake, and that wouldn't do it. I bent the brake lever forward to get a little more pull, and still not enough. I pulled in enough cable that the brake was partially engaged, but still could not get enough pull on the lever to lock up the brake.

I went and ordered brake levers from worksman.

I'll send you a PM to talk price on that throttle.
