the little shaft sticking out the one sidein the front of the tranny is where stock brakes go you should be able to find a caliper and brake disc on ebay for fairly cheap.

Doesnt hurt to try. I think the calipers are made the same. Otherwise it gets very expensive.

here is how mine is set up, i got a caliper and rotor off of a pocket bike i had and took the factory lawnmower rotor and bolted it to the new rotor, then i made a bracket to mount the new caliper to and added a bicycle brake handle to the floorboard. heres a few pics.
