Anyone hear of the TCB II unit that you replace your brake line banjo bolt with to give you more braking control? Yahoo or Google motorcycle TBC for info. I just ran across it as I was surfing the net for motorcycle stuff.

Do you have a link? I tried to look it up and only found a thread on a Harley site about it from 2008. The link provided in the thread was and it was a bad link. I did find one other link to a shop selling the "Original TCB" but nothing on the TCB II.

I did a quick search and found this web site:

I don't know that I would bother. It says it "acts as a shock absorber" - well, that's what my old rubber brake lines did, and I intentionally replaced them with stainless braided lines in order to sharpen the brakes and make them more powerful. I don't want a "shock absorber" making them spongy again.

I think this is one of those things that rate right up there next to the "magnetic octane boosters" and other black magic items.
