Ok, why do you say only front Ss lines and no rear?

This is one of those topics like which oil to use. There's a real Mason-Dixson Line mentality that goes on. Remember, everyone has an opinion, and if you're one of those people that differs, than you MUST be wrong
Some folks claim to NEVER use their rear brakes, I've seen some street bikes where the owner simply removes it all together. Some even make wild claims that you'll instantly crash if you use it, your left nut will shrivel and fall off in the shower, and the world economy will crash just as sure as your bike will crash from rear brake use. Thus they see no use what so ever in improving its function.
Then there are others who realize the physics of kenetic energy as well as kinesthetic learning clines are at times inverse. A motorcycle has anywhere form 0%-30% of its braking ability from the rear brake. But if you are in fact one of those lucid types that sees a benefit of improving your ability to scrub speed off by any percentage as a good thing, then you good sir, might indeed see the benefits of improving its functions.
But wait, there's more (there's always more)... You may use your brakes not merely there to scrub off speed and return it to the biosphere as added heat - no, braking of high speed motorcycles has not been determined to add to global warming. But I digress, you might in fact be one of those clever sorts of people, who have actually found it to be a tool to stabilize your motorcycle's suspension going into a turn, if so, you've no doubt and had one of those light bulb, ah-ha, eureka moments and realize that being able to find tune those inputs to your suspension as a result of greater/improved sensitivity from your upgraded brake system.
Now, my brief excursion into silliness should you understand the multiple facets of my rantings imbue you with even greater appreciation for a much improved m/c. Which will make more of a difference than mere pads & hoses... Well sort of, but is palpable.
As one can see, I have tithed at the twin alters of speed & suspension modulation.
Today's lesson has drawn to its conclusion.
Trick question: what is the most powerful system on your bike ( with the given, that everything is in fine working order)?
Yeah, I guess there's no suspense, since I used that first word in the above Q, eh? How can that be? Check every new bike/car test article... How do the 0-60 mph numbers match the 60-0 mph numbers in the context of time/distance?
