I was also looking for a kit or some info non a front only brake lever. Not having a front ONLY brake lever is a Major saftey concern and Polaris should have their buts sued off for not providing one on all bikes!
It seems that no Polaris engineer ever tried to back down a steep hill on an atv. The famous K turn does is not possible most of the time.
I have been debating T-ing off the front block with a line and another master cylinder, hand lever on the bars.

I like the one leaver style, better for extreme rideing where you can apply the brake and gas alot quicker, just be carefull when your rideing down a 70 degree slope lol.

I have found a kit online. I won't be back to my office until Monday. I'll pull it up and post it. Believe it was around $380.00. It looks like there will be a liitle mod work to do to integrate the throttle and MC mount

The one lever applies all brakes. These machines need a front only lever on the right bar for backing down a steep incline.

Right on! I heard of a kit some time ago but could not find it online.
Please send me the link if you can.

it would be easier and cheaper to just put a line lock switch in.
Any line lock I have used is apply only with no feel @ all. On and of like a light switch. The purpose is to be able to apply the front only with varied amounts of application, not just to hold bike [present lever will do this].

How would you rig it? Have not seen many line locks in the last 20 years maybe they have improved.

The website you need to go to is hotseatperformance.com. The kit you're looking for is called a "split brake kit" under the chassis accessory tab in the polaris folder.
