Thanks for the link. Hopefully this fixes it but I'm not overly hopeful.
Personally, I like stock rotors and Vesrah pads. Although I hear the Brembo rotors are nice too.Hey "Boss Man" I am looking for a good Street/ 1/4Mile setup for my 08 R1.
What type of Pads and Rotors do you recommend? I already have Braided Lines and a Brembo Master that I have but will install if I need to.(Its a spare from my Track Bike)
Just looking for a little more that's all. The braking on it now is fine but doesn't have that bite I want.Personally, I like stock rotors and Vesrah pads. Although I hear the Brembo rotors are nice too.
What exactly are you looking for that your current setup does not do?
SRJL XX's are nice, but you have to get them warmed up a bit for maximum bite.Just looking for a little more that's all. The braking on it now is fine but doesn't have that bite I want.
Which Vesrah's do you recommend, RJL SRJL....?
What about Braking rotors they are going for pretty cheap right now for the WK's? Question is how much of an improvement are they over the stock rotors??
What year?I have a question about my front brake.
About a month ago, I felt my front brake getting soft.
Today, my front brake is very soft and doesn't work well.
I checked the brake fluid. I think it's okay.
What is the problem? What shoul I do?
Try doing this:Thank you for reply!
What year? 2007
Do you see any fluid leaking out? No, I don't see any leaking out
Does the lever go all the way to the handle bar? Easily all the way upto 1/2 inch to the handle bar.
If you pump the lever a few times does it firm up the brakes?
No. I tried few times, then it still same.
and see if that helps. You can spray the sides of the pistons with some dry teflon lube when you have them all pumped out.Sounds like a sticking caliper.
Try removing your calipers one at a time and sticking a piece of wood between the pistons (you'll need to remove the pads) then pump the master a few times and make sure all of the pistons make contact with the wood. Use an old toothbrush and some brake fluid and clean off the crap on the pistons. You can rotate the pistons a little as you do it to make sure you get all of it off. Then push them back and do the other side.
That should help. If not, you may need to do a full rebuild. If a piston comes completely out then you'll need to rebleed your brakes, and technically you are supposed to rebuild them if that happens, but you should be ok. Try not to let that happen though.
I would use either 000 steel wool or 300 - 400 grit sandpaper. My preference would be the steel wool.Hey there,
I am replacing my buttons with fully floating buttons, I notice my front inner pads wearing faster than the outer. (Even on both sides mind)
Prior to using the SBS HH Sintered (street excel) pads i did a full rebuild on the calipers, so should be no issues with the calipers...I am considering the SBS HH Sintered race pads as SBS state they are more suited to fast road/track use.
While the rotors are off I want to wet sand them, whats the best wet n dry to use, they are not warped and are within spec still
