BBS02 conversion - Hydraulic brake lever with cutoff

Hi
I'd rather avoid the magnet sticker solution

My donor bike has these brakes: Shimano MT400 Hydraulic Disc, [F] 180mm [R] 160mm
With Shimano MT401 levers

My cheap iGo ebike has brake levers (mechanical disc) with a cutoff sensor that connects to the controller. Much cleaner than sticking magnets.

Is there a hydraulic brake lever with motor cutoff on the market?

Thanks

Yes, some have the yellow 3-pin Higo connectors you need to work with the BBS02, others may have the red 2-pin higo connector in which case you would need a higo 2-pin to 3-pin connector like this to make them work with your kit.

Thanks Dewey. Got a link to a hydraulic brake lever with ebike cutoff?

Sure, Tektro (yellow 3-pin) or Magura (red 2-pin - would need that connector). But check with your brake manufacturer if they are compatible
