Need Parking Brake

After the event earlier this month, my new turbo will be getting a parking brake.

Any recommendations?

Re: Need Parking Brake

I use the "spring brake thingy". works great. Pro UTV Parts has a great forum price on it too. Takes about 5 minutes to install.

I registered on your site to order the parking brake, but it won't let me log in. I reset my password, and it still did not work.

Re: Need Parking Brake

For a lock, just drill a hole thru the shifter with it in Park, install locking hitch lock pin. Avoid moving parts, just block the shifter in Park.

Finished, looks like this: https://www.rzrforums.net/projects-h...tml#post499180

Re: Need Parking Brake

Whatever parking brake arrangement you buy, grease the moving parts. Doesn't take but one or two washes for the sliding shaft connected to the pivot handle to start to rust and get hard to move.

Re: Need Parking Brake

I bought this one from Pro UTV parts. Can't figure out how to install it though. Instructions were terrible. Pics are tiny. Can't even tell where to start.

It's as simple as removing and replacing two nuts. The hardest part is finding a way to tighten the lower nut. I've done two of them (one on my RZR, one on a friend's), and getting that lower nut cinched down is an exercise in frustration. Other than that I love the pawltector for its simplicity, low profile and ease of use.

Yeah, Pro UTV's website said it was easy, but you can't figure out where to start based on the instructions so no way to know if the actual installation is easy or not. Would be great if they provided some better pictures or a video or something.

1) Remove two 13mm brake master cylinder nuts to right of brake pedal.
2) Put pawltector on the studs.
3) Replace two 13mm nuts.
4) Cuss, swear and throw things while trying to tighten the lower nut.

Thanks, but there aren't any nuts beside the brake pedal. It is just a plastic floor pan. The arm the brake pedal is attached to just disappears up in the firewall somewhere.

You're right, they're not actually beside the brake pedal - I misspoke. They're beside the brake pedal lever, further up the firewall.


This video doesn't help with the installation per se, but it shows you where it's installed:
