OK thats good.The reason I wanted to know is that I just got my rekluse in and decided that I wanted to try a left hand brake.I was thinking that I could use a clutch master I already have and run the hose to my back master and use a double hole banjo bolt and stack my hoses.Has anyone ever thought of this and is it possible?

Why? I dont get it. You are going to have the front and rear brakes on the same lever? Sounds like disaster.

Left hand back brake.I no longer have a clutch lever.Rekluse has a kit that you can do the same thing for around $300.Just think going over a jump and pulling your left index finger to get the nose down.Sounds good to me.

If it's a magura clutch, i dont think its a good idea as the fluid it has to use will not stand up to heat and iirc you cant use dot4 fluid in it....

if it's a street bike or other hydraulic clutch mc then yeah, it's possible to do I think - just need a really long brake line.
