I have it and it works great!!! I will take a pic and post it up. I had to concerns when I first installed it, I thought I would have to add fluid often, and the heat from the exhaust pipe might be a problem. Heat is not a problem at all and I have not filled it up once since install (3 months).
I do use my rear brake often.

Thanks pics and input is appreciated. Want to install but want to ensure no problems with it.

Here are a couple of pics. Like I said, I was worried about the heat from my exhaust pipe but it has not been a problem so far. I still keep my eye on it though.

I tried it and it did weep brake fluid. So I cut down the original rubber tubing. Sure I can't see how much fluid is there but it doesn't leak any longer

If you gotta ask you can't afford it.

i made my own, all i did was remove the rear brake cylinder, and plug it with a wider screw, just screwed it on, and then zip tied it. works like a charm, track tested and approved.
