Does anyone use the lever type? I like how fast I can change the setting. What to buy?
Thanks,MM

So far it's my favorite. Works great with stock dual-circuit masters.

Easy to go back to a known setting rather than twisting and counting. I oriented it so that the lever pointed rearward when I was adding rear brake; easy to remember.

I've since moved to another setup for dual tiltons, but I can't really recommend it (yet).

Word of caution with those guys.. after a few years, the piston tends to get stuck in them if you don't overhaul them and keep fresh fluid in things. the one in my RX7 was stuck in place regardless of handle setting.

Mine wont get stuck- I change the setting a couple times per lap @ Sebring .

I'm not that good of a driver. might change mine once or twice during a weekend to try to find the happy place during practice/qual, and then I leave it alone and drive.

LOL, thats what I was thinking,,, (about me, not you haha) I do the same exact thing, but I do keep clean fresh fluid every where so hopefully mine isnt sticking..

I've used this for years and have a caution - they can get sticky internally even if the handle is moved.

Mine was not always fully releasing rear pressure, resulting in very rapid rear brake wear (and presumably slower speed as well!)

Got the rebuild kit, cleaned it up and good as new. I think that dust/dirt coming in from the top was the issue, it was just a bit grungy inside.

I like the valve just fine but it does need maintenance every few years in my limited experience.

Once or twice per weekend? I think I may change mine once or twice per season...then again I think I change mine whenever I bump it getting into the car...

:lol:

Seriously. I move mine when I'm bleeding the brakes, and if it's some level of wet on the track. That's about it.

I've also been using the same Tilton lever-style valve for like 10 years, and it still works just fine.
