Nice setup. I've never heard of that brand until now. I'll have to look more into it since I'm thinking of upgrading my front brakes over the winter, although it looks expensive!
Seems there is an on going issue with Brembo RCS m/c... needing to be rebuilt or even replaced on a semi-regular basis when used in moderate to severe situations. I know a number of members on the Aprilia (RSV4) Forum were especially critical. The dudes that tend to inhabit that particular board are usually are intelligent & savvy.
Thus, I went up to EDR Performance (≈ 50-mi N of where I live) to discuss the issue. To tour EDR's facility is nothing short of orgasmic! (EDR Performance
). They build dozens of race/heavily modified street bikes a month. These katz know their shit! They echoed the issues with Brembo, and seconded the switch to Gale Speed.
In a vein of open honesty, I had previously used Gale Speed wheels on an R1 race bike, thus was a fan of their work. Their quality is absolutely second to none.
The buy-in is comparable to Brembo RCS m/c. So, though more costly than pair of anodize levers, they are not out of this world. If you seriously want/require the best in stopping, look no further. Give Anton at EDR Performance a call and get, a quote; tell him Mark with the ZX_6R sent you - he might make it a more attractive price than you might think.
To be honest I've also posted a thread on my new set of Brake Tech rotors: "The best damn SS rotors on the planet
I've used Brake Tech on my last 2 race bikes, both R1s, and on my CBR 1000RR. I believe them to be the absolute best stainless steel brake rotors, period. Once you use them you won't want to settle for anything less. The bonus for me, is B.T. has just released a new line of full floating rear rotors. So, I received a nice deal from our own Hard Racing on the full set. Shoot them a PM if you are looking to up grade your brakes.
