    I'm thinking about upgrading the front brakes on my 1992 TA. It seems there are 2 options: - install a fork with dual disks from a 1995 or later - install a bigger rotor (e.g. from a NT650) using an adapter Since I'm not a very experienced mechanic I think I will go for the second option...

    Anyone used EBC disks and pads on their XL600V? I have a '94 single disk, and the OEM brakes are just rubbish. Or anyone used Brembo disks and pads instead of the OEM's? Thanks

    Any idea if such a thing exists? My new tv has a USB port that I can plug portable disks and memory sticks into. I also run a network share in the house that has loads of films, music and photos on it that we can access from the xbox and computers dotted around the house. What I'm looking for...

    My rear disc is worn and liooking to replace for impending MOT. EBC do one at £42 but if the reputation is anything like the pads I might overlook it, and our friend hollismx have a convincing blurb about the quality of their materials and designs for a mere £30 Im severely tempted... except Im...

  15. Transalp
    Hi folks, Can anybody tell me the size of the disks for the Transalp:confused: By size I mean the diameter, as I found somewhere that the rear disk was 240mm but have seen one advertised elsewhere which says it's a 220mm disk.... and this has confused me a bit... and could anyone confirm if...
  16. Africa Twin
    Just wandering does anyone have any experience with these disks? Unfortunately I've already bought some in panic but not fitted them after discovering a rather dodgy looking crack across my original disk, so it's my bad luck if they aren't that good....:confused:

    I took my @ for a MOT last year - and the guys in the workshop said that my front discs had warped - as a result i forked out in fitting a new set of EBC discks front and back. However - i have never been happy with them as they have surface rust overnight - the stopping power is much worse...

    Anyone got a set of front discs for a 2000 @ that they want to sell?
  20. Africa Twin
    Not sure what I'm doing to my brake disks but they sure don't like it. Having felt the brakes pumping slightly for some time I suspected that the front brake disks were warped. I sensed this because I've experienced it before. In fact, this is the second set of disks I've had in about 18 months...
