Finally it arrived today, as my current old habits of 1 finger braking, i now found
that it really impossible to stop 43horses, so i seek the new wavey rotor
for help














rotor is new ... so i don't expect immediate improvement, will update the findings over the weekend ...

meanwhile enjoy the bling-ki-ness :D:D:D

I've never had great experiences with wave or fancy cut rotors. I think they are a visual accessory, not a performance mod. Good luck.

from what I know its not going to help much with braking power

think about upgrading your brakes to something with more intial torque

they do look very cool though.

i have passed the msg to my dealer looking for performance brakes pad.
Because to upgrade to bigger piston caliper they quoted me USD1k for front 1pair 100mm and rear 84mm USD550, both Brembo P34 model.

both need custom bracket that would easily drain another USD200

any recommendation for brake pads for our 80mm front and 75mm rear ?

EBC do good quality pads and so do Brembo. I wont be getting KTM's disc, at $340 they can kiss my ar$e :D
Im going the same way Phil went with the front master cylinder but am also looking at the rear master as well. Will probably stick with clutch cable and purchase the Brembo 16 to match the 19. Also going to get a 2010 Duke 990 rear caliper, after all my looking I reckon its identical. Oh and also going to replace my lines with HEL. So much to do yet so little money :rolleyes:

Looks great Im glad you went with Galfer instead of the china one. I think I saw that replica somewhere on ebay.

Are you going to get stainless lines as well and put some different fluid?
