brakes

    I've had this bike for about a year since I've had it I've had to pump the front brakes to use them. For example, when I come to a stop and squeeze the handle there's nothing, I have to squeeze, squeeze, squeeze then they finally work. I've bled them, don't know what else to do. Someone said...

    Hey all It's been a bit since I've been onto the forums. So last year I started having an issue with my brakes, more specifically my front brakes. I hadn't been out on the bike in a few weeks and I noticed my front brake was complete mush. Bled the lines and everything bled nice except for the...

    I bought 06 ZX6R last year that came with ~20K miles. I have not done much work on it except for replacing some plastic parts I damaged when lowsided on track days. My thoughts were the bike was not worth expensive upgrades, still I paid a pro shop to rebuilt forks and shock, installed ohlins...

    So looking to bleed my brakes not sure whats a good brand for my bike to use as a replacement fluids . Its an 04 636 and this will be my first time doing this since I purchased it. Brakes seem very squishy. I notice that on cold starts my brakes seem very stiff and gab good but once my bike gets...

    So, as some of you may have seen by another thread I made recently, I warped a brake disc. Turns out that even a VERY minor warping of one of those front discs causes significant wobble and shake while braking - I knew this in principle, but not having ever actually experienced it, I didn't have...

    Hi guys. I'm new to this forum and relatively new to owning motorcycles. I have a 2002 Ninja ZX6r and have had it for a year now. When I bought it from the previous owner the front brakes worked fine and comfortable. Then I replaced the brake pads (both front and back) and I was good to go. Here...

    Hi everyone. I'm new here, forgive me for bad english. I own 03 636, its pretty damn good after zx7r, but i wanna change something. At first i made custom exhaust, tommorow new radial MC will arive and the next step is calipers, rebuilding my tokico's or buy a 07 nissin's for 40€ and then...

    Can anyone tell me if the front brake pads for the 2006 636C1 also fit the D1? I've done online searches for new pads, and they all come up with the C1. Also - can anyone tell me the differences between the C1 and the D1? Chris

    Just wondering what preferences riders here have when it comes to brake pads at the track. Brand, Warm up time, longevity, sintered or organic, etc. Do you prefer hard initial bite or polite bite with progressive modulation? Searched the thread and didn't really find much about what brakes...

    Just thought I'd let you guys know that bdtrackside has these track vesrah pads at an amazing prices. Check it out!

    I've been thinking about doing the switch to SS, although on here i have seen some people buying the wrong kit(not for abs) which mine is an abs model. Core moto has an abs kit for $199. Is that a good kit, who would yall recommend? difficulty of installation? I am mechanically inclined

    Upgrading my lines in spring and Im wondering what brand lines do you guys run? Also did you swap out your pads when you got your new lines?:dowhat
  17. Mechanical and Technical
    As promised, here is my personal feeling about making the switch from an 05/06 front brake setup to an 07-12 front brake setup. I will start by saying that when I initially bought my 06, the front brakes were pitiful. Mushy lever that after bleeding would only be firm for a day or two before...

    Hey guys so the rotors on my bike are warped. Probably from the wreck the previous owner had and I am thinking while im replacing stuff I might as well go ahead and upgrade some stuff. Im definitely getting some steel lines but I think I heard the 2014s have bigger rotors and calipers. Does...

    So I've had this annoying clicking whenever I'd begin to accelerate coming from the rear brake caliper. Upon closer inspection looks like it's being caused by the slightest of play or "wiggle" in the caliper slide pins as shown in the pic. Wondering if this is normal or do I have to replace the...

    Went to DMV today to take my road test only to find out that my brake lights are not working. neither the front nor the back are signaling. the tail light is working just fine. I checked the fuse under the seat and it's intact as well. as far as I can tell the tail light is an led assembly so...
