A long time ago there was a conversation about having better brakes,
and I was told that I didn't know good because I had never felt it.
Well the '03 750 front end had better stopping power, but only
incrementally so and certainly wasn't an eye opener.
Last week I rode a friend's 2006 GSXR1000 and *THAT* was some better
brakes. I grabbed them lightly in the paddock and did a full on
stoppie. I was worried they might be too grabby on the track, but at
speed they were incremental and *sweet*. 170mph down Thunderhill's
front straight and I felt better entering turn 1 on the GSXR1000 than
I ever did on either sv650. My god those brakes were nice.
The pads were Vesrah SRJL, which I have already acquired. Is there
anything else about the '06 brakes I might want to find? Can I just
swap these onto my '03 front end? Pretty please?
