Is anyone using this by chance?

Interesting disclaimer in the write up:

Please contact our distributor for any further clarification.

^^ I believe that is in relation to the various ways to install and use this. I think using WITH existing rear brake pedal and master is a little tricky??

I've been looking at this as well.
I do not have wheelie control and I find it difficult to cover the rear brake sometimes. As well, I thought I'd explore the use of the rear brake in general next season. (Track bike only.)
Anyway, there are a number of different set-ups; you can set it up to be the only way to use the rear brake (replaces the foot lever) or you can set it up to work with the foot lever (option in which both thumb and foot lever are operational, use one or the other).
If I find the website that has the various options, I'll post it here.
The disclaimer is to ensure that this is used on the track only and that whomever installs it knows what they doing.
Some people swear by the use of the rear break; some people never ever use it. All I know is that I am curious about the potential of using it and the foot lever just doesn't have a natural, feel - poor ergonomics.

i have a setup on my dirtbike where i have a rear brake on my handlebar along with a regular footbrake and the handlebar brake also engages the clutch when engaged.

i know the riding styles are different but the application is similar, i tend to like it but it can be a nightmare to maintain especially keeping pressure in both lines.

Any particular reason you used this setup as opposed to the brembo??

Would be great if @jarelj could weigh in here
