Correct me if I am wrong but I think you are looking for what we used to call a " line lock ". The unit fits in the brake line for the front brakes at or near the master cylinder and locks the front brakes only for preloading at the start line of a drag race or performing burn outs when a little braking is needed and you dont want to heat up the rears. It is remote activated so anywhere in the line before it splits in two is fine and for ease of release the lock/unlock button should be on the shifter or steering wheel. It really helps when you have a manual shift vehicle and only two feet to work the controls.

How do you change the handbrake handle?

On what bike? There might be a bolt to unscrew for the front brake, make sure the new lever abuts the hydraulic actuator correctly. For the rear lever: Mechanical brake, undo and remove the linkage from the lever. Remove the pivot bolt and withdraw the lever and return spring. Refit is the reverse, ensure all locking pins and springs are refitted. Hydraulic is different in that there is no linkage, a small pin acuates the hydraulic piston. Remove the pin connection and proceed as before.
