Ok, originally I was looking for a electric disk break setup, but found they don't really work or exist... It's for my son's atv conversion, and it already has a disk breaking system with a master cylinder... But it's really hard for him to pull effectively... So, what I was thinking was maybe a break booster exists that could work here... Much like a car or power steering to help with breaking... Anyone know a product/part I could use for that? Also open for other ideas if ya got them.

If you just use a smaller-diameter master cylinder, the rider will need to apply less force - but through a longer stroke - to have the same braking effect. It's the hydraulic equivalent to leverage.

I thought about that, but he can barely reach it now with the current stroke length. I even tried to build a leverage mechanism, but that didnt come out to great either.

Doesn't club car run a booster on their 6 place?

Otherwise a car booster can be installed if you have room. Vintage American stuff seems to have a semi standard bolt pattern on the m/c side.

Wildwood have a series of boosterless master cylinders, that are very effective. I converted my 60s volvo to boosterless due to the massive booster rod setup on that acts somewhat like a battering ram..

You can see it image left. That whole unit is now gone completly.
