calipers

  1. Mechanical and Technical
    So today I got new tires put on my 2003 ZX636... Also swapped to a better set of rotors I had. And the pads are only two weeks old. After getting things together I pumped the front brakes, those of which worked great before but my old rotors were warped. I had a firm brake lever. When I move my...

  6. The ZX6R
    I'm considering upgrades on my track day bike. The bike came with full floating rotors. From what I see, I might benefit from SS braided lines, but my brake lever is pretty firm and I don't think I'm losing much from expansion of the lines. More expensive would be going to Brembo pads on the...
