Thanks but i'm looking for a short one for the foot pedal not a hand lever.
i've got rear sets so using the stock pull rod would be mighty complicated.

Thanks guys, i widened my search by accident by just looking for "kawasaki rear brake cable" turns out kawasaki has tons of mid 80's stuff with rear brake cables, even if i don't include quads.

How about a rear brake like featured on the honda CT200?
If one is available it should be a fairly straightforward fit?

The CT200 has lugs on the swing arm to accomodate it.

Will take some photos of mine tomorrow, If somebody has the facilities to fabricate and weld on the fixing lugs it could be a viable option as the cables are still available to purchase.
