Title: Pendle ST1300 Parking Brake

Here you go!     For all of those who were interested in a Middleton Handbrake, here's an alternative, known as a Pendle Parking Brake.   It can be purchased via ebay at http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Honda-ST1300-Parking-Brake-for-Models-2003-2008-/231105750923?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item35cef9e78b&_uhb=1 (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Honda-ST1300-Parking-Brake-for-Models-2003-2008-/231105750923?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item35cef9e78b&_uhb=1) for around $70 AUD, and postage from GB looks like it is included.   I just might get my self one of these.   

I've sent an e.mail to Tony to confirm if shipping to Oz is included.    Make sure you order the correct kit, as there are two ST1300 kits, depending upon the type of brake lever that you have fitted.

I've just ordered a Pendle Parking Brakes via ebay.   Tony covers the postage, so the kit has cost me about $70 Aussie dollars, delivered.   Once I receive it, I'll post some photos and provide a report.

The type of brake lever was changed during 2008, so refer to the photos on the web site http://www.tworrall.talktalk.net/ (http://www.tworrall.talktalk.net/) and make sure you order the correct kit.

My "Pendle Parking Brake" arrived today.   It was a ten minute job to fit it accordance with the supplied instructions,  which are also shown on the web site link.   http://www.tworrall.talktalk.net/ (http://www.tworrall.talktalk.net/)    It's an alternative to the Middleton Brake that Abe and Saaz are using.   I haven't posted any photos, 'cause there's lots on their web site.

Hope no one objects but I have just joined your forum from the England where we do not talk about the cricket. I would like to thank all your members who have shown an interest in and especially to those who have purchased my Pendle Parking Brakes. Yes postage is F.O.C.
I have not sold many ST1100 ones but the 1300s are going reasonably well from down under.
The feedback I have received from Oz, USA, Canada and Europe has been great but sales are a bit slow in the Northern hemisphere I think due to the wintery weather, all bikes are laid up under cover hibernating.
I really appreciate the feedback I get from you guys, especially about the 40 deg weather you are currently getting. I do not know how you cope with wearing all the gear in those temperatures. The Pans must be blowing hot air over your legs all time. Wish you could send some of it our way ( 5 deg wet and windy here - so whats new I hear you say ).
Thanks again for your interest and great comms & feedback - it really is appreciated.
Kind regards
Tony

Sorry to report that I am ending the production of the ST1300 P/Brake due to a failure of sales.

I will be continuing with the ST1100 type as this one continues to be very popular all over the world.

I have been informed that the lack of sales of the 1300 type probably stems from an article in the UK Pan Clan
magazine which was critical of the design and raised safety concerns.
The article suggested that it should have been designed upside down (HOW?) as this would prevent any failure
of a broken spring causing a potential hazard. It also suggested that over vigorous cleaning could damage
the spring.

Details of all the safety tests carried out (including broken spring or jammed plunger) were provided to the Pan Clan UK
These safety tests proved conclusively that the Pan Clan report was nothing more than academic clap trap.
Unfortunately my reply to them which included details of the tests were completely ignored and not published.

I have not received a single reported failure of the ST1100 design in over 14 years, on the contrary, everyone
has been extremely complimentary.

The ST1300 design follows the exact same principle as the ST1100 type.

To the few people who have purchased the ST1300 brake I will assure you of my full service backup and support.

Following this announcement, if any of my 1300 customers have any concerns about safety, quality or reliability of
the product I have supplied I am prepared to offer a full refund should you wish to return the item. Please be assured
that a broken spring or jammed plunger can never prevent the brake being applied. THE DESIGN IS FAILSAFE.

Regards
A disappointed
Tony

Hi
I have not relisted the 1300 on ebay as I was just wasting money with the ads
No sales for 2 months except one to Oz.
As I give free postage it is not really worthwhile selling just to Oz - I needed a UK market to help me to continue.
Kind regards

I bought one a few months ago, so can't justify another, but I can highly recommend this brake from Tony. Once ST1300 owners see them, how they work, and how handy they are, they will want one! Just make sure you get the correct one for pre-08 models.

Three choices:-

ST1300 upto 07 and
ST1300 08 onwards

Post by: TonyWorrall on May 02, 2014, 08:34:28 PM
I would just like to say thank you very much for all the emails/messages of good will etc I have received from all you guys "down under".
The brakes have now been relisted on Ebay but I can confirm that a group buy and delivery to a single Aussie address would attract a reasonable discount.
Thanks again for all your support.
Kind regards
Tony

One thing I did mean to say is before anyone orders, check your brake lever type as I needed the '09 and later type, but my '08 model ST has the later type of brake lever. Not sure why, but it's worth checking yours just in case....Yours should definitely be right Terry.
Title: Re: Pendle ST1300 Parking Brake
Post by: STroppy on May 02, 2014, 10:05:45 PM
I chatted with Tony a d sent him fotos of my lever . . I also needed the 09 on version. Got a mesage from him that he was relisting the parking brake on ebay so went and bought it . . . Thanks for all the info Andrew and you too Pete . . .

If your ST1300 hand brake looks this:-
(http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l535/West_Aussie_Glen/ST1300/DSC00857.jpg) (http://s1122.photobucket.com/user/West_Aussie_Glen/media/ST1300/DSC00857.jpg.html)
You need the A9 version.
Which from what I can work out the A9 is for 2008 models onwards. These models have the black in fill panel just below the riders seat on each side. The left side panel is surrounding the rear suspension adjustment.

Just got this email from Tony today.....


Hello
I just wanted to let you know that I have received a lot of emails asking me to resume production of the Pendle Parking/Locking Brake.
I have now produced a small quantity for both models
 
You can find details at

Food for thought.....can recommend mine, it did take a little while to remember I had one fitted  :grin

I use mine quite a bit, very useful and very easy to fit.  Great if one wants to stop and take a quick foto on a sloping road verge . .  Also around the garage when working on the bike . .

Oh, and very handy when towing the trailer . . . No not when on the move . . When stopped on a slope. Just a bit more insurance . .

It's a cunningly designed device that locks the front brake lever in the "braking" or "on" position, and is released with a gentle pull of the brake lever.  The Pendle Brake is a very handy device, which I find myself using more and more.
Title: Re: Pendle ST1300 Parking Brake
Post by: JuST Peter on February 10, 2015, 09:09:33 PM
The Parking Brake arrived today which means it took just over a working week to get here.......well done Royal Mail.

I've installed it on my ST, but ran into a couple of small problems doing so;
   the first being there wasn't any clearance between the locking pin and the brake handle, so I slipped one of the three supplied washers in between the
Parking Brake body and the brake handle which gave me enough distance between both but this brought out the second problem;
   as I mentioned I had to use a washer to give the pin enough clearance so I was left with very little thread on the end of the new Shoulder Screw.

This didn't give me enough thread to utilise the locknut so I used the M6 nut. I held the new Shoulder Screw firm with an Allen Key while I used a spanner on the M6 nut,
which meant it neither turned the lot nor tightened the Shoulder Screw too much. Ideally I'd be better off with a thinner nut and will source one in the coming days.

I have a pretty steep driveway which was an ideal test for it and it passed with flying colours  ++
Title: Re: Pendle ST1300 Parking Brake
Post by: JuST Peter on February 11, 2015, 09:08:02 PM
It's been suggested the brake handle may have been bent due to a fall or drop which could be the reason for the lack of clearance for the pin on the Pendle, so I'll buy a new handle and see if that makes a difference.

Looking closely I can see marks on the edge of the right mirror so the poor old girl may have taken a tumble at some stage before I got her.

I wrote to Tony Worrall who suggested I file the pin down a bit but I'm a bit wary about that so will explore the new handle idea first.

Post by: Biggles on February 13, 2015, 04:35:41 PM
Mine just arrived.
A splendid piece of machining.  I'll fit it this weekend.
How good is this?  We have fabricators of useful farkles popping up everywhere, from Young Abe to ST2UP's mate, Tony in UK, Gatey's aux tank and I'm sure there's more to be mentioned, apart from the excellent USA MCL items.  Every one of them built to precision standards befitting the ST!

Post by: JuST Peter on February 17, 2015, 08:11:48 PM
Yesterday had me getting a new front tyre, when i showed my mechanic the Pendle and what I thought should be done.
He took it off the ST, removing the washer too, over to his work bench, where he used a Dremel type grinder and ran a groove from front to back in line with the 4mm hole (which I bored a little deeper),
said "try this before you go getting a new handle",

and now it works like a charm  :like

Youse have shamed me into getting a round tuit.

Photo 1 shows plenty of clearance between the pin and the brake lever- at least 2mm

(http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e136/Pixtor/Pendle1_zps9fc5818b.jpg)

Photo 2 shows the bevel on the brake lever that the arm sits on.  Tony machined a bevel on the arm but it doesn't match the lever's bevel very closely.  Yours may be different at that point.
