    Brake upgrade

    So, I ordered a plug and play Brembo RCS kit from AF1.

    The kit comes with the adjustable 18 x 20 ratio master cylinder, mirror perch, new brake line, resevoir bracket and brake light switch.

    It was easy enough to fit apart from the brake light switch that plugs into the loom up under the clocks.

    A wee test ride today up the East Coast of Scotlandshire and I am well impressed. True one finger braking. I have also gone with Bendix MF sintered pads too and the stopping power now is incredible, but very light at the lever.

    Happy bunny

    Massive improvement in terms of feel and the amount of pressure needed at the lever.

    I could stand the bike on it's nose with one finger now. I always use two for safety, but the improved power is impressive.

    I paid $530 which is around 340
