What's a rear brake?


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

I use it fairly often, if you actually know how to use it properly it's pretty useful.

I dont think he's using the rear brake lol. Its more of a combination of really hard braking and multiple gear downshifts causing the rear to slide out
