This SAE Recommended Practice is intended to provide the minimum acceptable criteria for snowmobile hand brake control systems. This recommendation is not intended to cover competition vehicles nor is it intended to limit development of new and/or improved technology in controls. Although these recommendations are primarily addressed to hand control systems using an outer flexible conduit with a multiple strand inner cable or hydraulic type brake control system, the basic requirements of freedom of movement, strength, material, etc., will apply to any system.
Rationale: SSCC has review all its books which forced the work group to deeply review several SAE standards. There is a need to review this standard for consistency with other related standards and, to add requirements which were part of other SSCC documents.
