you dont need to use the rear brake.
pull the clutch in, drop gear into first at the bottom, turn reverse knob, the gear shifter should then drop one more time while twisting reverse kbob., the R should light up.. to get out of reverse, just put it into first and pull up.
reverse is just below first, you have to twist the knob for it to get there.
i recomment looking into the 'dr.d' reverse lever, it moves the reverse lever from the twist knob unto a lever on the handle bars so you can go into reverse without taking your hands off the handlebars.
