I got a recluse clutch on my 13yz450 but I don't want to pay for their brake,

I wouldn't expect it to last very long especially in a crash.  These are the same levers and master cylinders that come on the cheap Chinese pit bikes, and I know from experience that a mouse fart can break these things.   Unless you have some good bark busters then maybe they'll stand a chance. 


The next thing that you'll run into is how you pipe it to you're rear master cylinder.  Will this be your sole means of having a rear brake or are you going to try and Tee into the existing line so that you have use of the brake pedal?  I believe the rekluse kit comes with a special part that adapts a second brake line to the rear master cylinder.  You will need this unless you already have it by some chance.
