Lifesaver TCB Braking Control System

tcbI didn’t use/test it, but because it’s all about braking safety it’s worth publishing a post to let you know about it. What is it? A hydraulic brake control valve that helps prevent premature wheel lock up and that you can easily install by replacing the brake or master cylinder banjo bolt. Why? A sudden or quick stop shifts 70% of the weight of the motorcycle to the front wheel. A shift in weight to the front wheel during sudden deceleration makes the back of the motorcycle lighter and that results in the rear wheel locking up and skidding. 

How does it work? It’s a Hydraulic Control Valve. When brakes are applied it creates a pressure spike that locks on the high and low spots on the rotor, which can cause your wheel to lock. In a panic situation the motorcyclist typically over brakes. The TCB turns the pressure spike into a pressure wave, allowing the brake pad to apply an equal amount of pressure to the entire rotor. Because of this the brakes do not lock as early or as easily after you install this valve. What if the TCB Valve were to fail? The company states that your bike’s original braking system will still work without leakage. Your brakes will work and feel just like they did before the valve was installed. (I want to mention that it’s not an Anti-Lock Braking System). More questions? Visit Lifesaver TCB or contact Steve Chicilo on my behalf at 612-282-4119.

    I am Happy To Say that I am one of the people that have tested the TCB Braking Control System.
    I found it to do everything that it claimed to do and have over 40,000 miles of use.
    I have put it on numerous other motorcycles and everyone one has stated that they like how it works.
    I recommend you try it. It is very simple to install and if for some reason you decide not to use it in the future (which I doubt) simply remove and replace original bolt.
    I got mine from the person who invented it Mark Lipski and suggest you do the same.

    Rouge if you remember it was Jeff Bartucci of that called you and asked if you would look at a product I found and thought might be a great addition to increase the safety of a biker.

    I then had Jeff from Lighting Customs where I found the product being sold to forward a part to you. I soon after found the same part at the VTwin Expo in 2008 being packaged and marketed by another company Life Saver TCB. After speaking with everyone involved I find that each party claims to be suing the other and both claim they own the patents. After several calls to both camps and hearing the total opposite from each camp, I decided to not get involved with a product that involved the safety and life of a biker.

    I would recommend that anyone thinking of buying this product request proof of a license to do business and a copy proving they have liability insurance. My point is Cyril promotes the product here under one company and you push the other. Both companies claim to hold the patents. Who is lying? One company claims the other is selling product stock that is old and out dated…Way to many unknowns for me to put that on my bike.

    Is this a joke? This is in no way a “Baking Control System” or some sort of Traction Control as they are trying to imply. Where is the DOT approval on this? I am surprised to even see it even being promoted here on an otherwise creditable website.

    This is nothing more than giving yourself a ‘spongey” brake line, I assume by by adding a flexible volume chamber in the brake line system.

    This is the reason we change from rubber to optional steel braided brake lines in the first place – to eliminate spongey brakes! And why all high end bikes come with steel braided lines as original equipment.

    If you are such an incompetent, unskilled rider that you are in danger of locking up your bike’s brakes and crashing, and think you need this gizmo, then you probably shouldn’t be riding a motorcycle. Or you should buy a BMW motorcycle with real anti-locking brakes that really do work well.

    Why should we continue to trust the motorcycle industry who has ignored and suppressed the truth about ABS brakes for decades? Do not listen to foolish advice from experienced riders who claim they are not in need of safe braking systems – they just haven’t had their accident yet.

    BEWARE!!!!! Steve Chicilo has spent his entire life stealing from other people and he has stolen this product idea from someone else as well. He lives in a house that has more than twice its value in liens on it, built by defrauding a litany of contractors and suppliers. Both of his building licenses have since been revoked by the State of Minnesota as well. See link below;

    This guy is a true Sociopath. A dark, little and insecure guy that feels entitled to your money by any means. To get the real story, take a look at the list of people that he owes in within the civil action records at the state of Minnesota also.

    Did these guys used to be out of Colorado? Our card just got hacked from a company that seem affiliated. No numbers or emails work either.

    MBJ 5 LLC is what it says on the statement.
