You DO have steel-wrapped front brake hose, don't you
Yes. Both front and rear have Gafler SS lines. Gafler pads too.
And . . . I'd CERTAINLY expect you to have an oversize (320 mm diameter, stock is only 280 mm) front brake rotor (such parts appear available for Generation 2s), for obvious geometric/physical reasons.
Stock rotors though.
Otherwise . . . 80 mph on crowded southern California freeways . . . these suggestions may save you accident and injury. Yet, your bike, your risk!
This is quite true, however, I have to say currently the brakes are performing quite well. With my street tires on it and the 19Ē front wheel it performs as well as any of my previous BMWs so far as stopping power goes. Although I do miss ABS a bit when I think about riding in the rain.
Keep in mind that the 110/90, or is it a 110/80, tire has a larger contact patch than the 90/90 21Ē tire. Particularly with nobbies on it. I havenít performed a full brake test with this configuration.
Nor have I tested it fully loaded. Just me - 190 pound rider - with my street setup.
Brake improvement rates higher than micro-polished transmission gears on my priority list, but . . . that's probably just ME!
No, I canít say itís just you. And a 320mm rotor in the front will be in the picture I suspect when I decide to add luggage to it next year. Just so much money to spend on it this year.
Plus, Iíll need to buy two sets of rotors as I have a spare set I swap for the dirt.
Iím not sure about a caliper swap though. Iíve assumed I have a stock caliper, but really donít know. The PO painted the rotors red. Iíll have to look for a part number to figure it out. Assuming I can find them on the calipers. What I can say though is it stops quickly with the street configuration. I have no complaints or worries with just me on it.
