Patent for Sale:Motorcycle Hydraulic Parking Brake
Primary Application of the Technology
The Problem Solved by the Technology
The motorcycle transmission is used to keep the motorcycle from rolling back (by keeping the transmission in gear). This creates a problem when restarting the motorcycle. The rider must either hold the front brake on by hand or the rear brake on by the foot brake, and also hold the clutch in by hand or shift the transmission into neutral. This creates an uncomfortable and unstable situation for the rider, as they are doing a sort of balancing act to keep the motorcycle from rolling back. My device locks the front brake keeping the motorcycle stable while starting and warming it up. The device can also be used when stopped at a traffic light on a hill, the rider simply applys the brake as normal and then flips the lever on the device to lock the brake. The rider can now have both feet on the ground, and his hands free to make comfort and safety adjustments while waiting to proceed.
How the Technology Solves the Problem
easily installed to the existing motorcycle without any modifications of the braking equipment. The device attaches directly to the existing motorcycle master cylinder. There are no solenoids (wireing), or reconfiguring of the brake line needed. The sale of the patent will include detailed manufacturing design drawings which will enable the buyer to manufacture this device.
