How bad are the front brakes 'supposed' to be?
So, being new to this bike, and having ridden it a bit with leaking fork seals, I'm not actually sure what 'normal' brakes feel like on this bike. I could well have them right now, but I have no way of knowing except for you guys!
So here's my observations: From around 60km/h (40mph), I pull the brakes as hard as I can (nearly to the bar, not a huge fan of that either), the front dives, but no stoppie or lockup.
I know I can't compare this with any modern bike (or even decent 80's braking...), but I'm just wondering if this is normal. I really doubt it's the case, but could the rotor have oil like...soaked in? I wiped it down with acetone when I replaced the pads (EBC sintered), and scuffed it up just a wee bit with some sandpaper.
