I suppose the only way is to call them.
    If I knew it was only $50 more I would have gone for it , but then there's shipping and time from Australia (?) what fits what (?) etc, etc

    Nothing is better than the Clake SLR dual control kit. Unfortunately at this time, they only work with a Brembo clutch master cylinder, not a Magura like Husqvarna started using recently. They also require a Brembo rear brake master cylinder, so that would have to be changed as well. Doing both of those pushes it into the $600 range if purchased new.

    That being said, I did get those Brembo parts so I could use the SLR. I take them off when I sell the bike and keep them for the next one Can't ride without the SLR, you just can't beat the ergonomics compared to any other LHRB. For me (and many of my friends), it's worth the investment.

    I sent Clake an email over a month ago asking for some replacement part advice for my Clake one clutch master. Still no reply.

    Not endorsing the OX (yet) but if you wipe out your OX master cylinder almost any bicycle shop in town has a new on for $75.00.

    Thanks J. Johnson for a lead on Clake parts.

    OX hydra: I bought one since my last post and have ridden 2x since. My reason for LHRB: I run a rekluse. If you climb ( and donít succeed) steep hills, you need a LHRB - in my opinion.

    Originally my OX didnít have the power i wanted. I called OX - nice guy- an we found a couple details ( adjustment on my part) that helped. The final solution was runnin the ox lever in the clutch position where i could get a normal pull on it.
    I run my clutch lever down low, as i rarely touch it.

    i din not find a steep learning curve. VERY tricky , trial type down hills it is handy. I didnít need it for brake sliding, i still have my pedal. I did not notice ď cancelling outĒ when applying foot and hand brake. The foot overpowers the hand an you let go.

    i think the design is ingenious. Only hiccup is the boot that must be sealed with rtv or similar. If water or crud gets in the boot, slave cylinder is gone ( per manufacturer ). A better design would place the boot on the bottom so water would drain w gravity.

    it works, Iím satisfied. I paid full price and purchased directly from OX brake.
