My buddy just recently bought a used TL1000R. Can't remember the year, but I think its 2001 or 2002 or something.
It seems to have stock 6 piston front brakes and stock lines, and I gave them a try in the Cypress parking lot today. All I can say is they suck ass really bad compared to my F4i's 4 piston brakes with steel braided lines and Double H pads. I brought the bike upto about 80 or 90kph and tried to stop quickly and the bike was an absolute slug to stop.
The pad life seemed to be about 50% total, and there didn't seem to be any glazing on the rotors. Are his pads glazed maybe (or can only car brake pads glaze I don't know)? My first suggestion to him was to get a set of Double H pads.
Do any of you have any insight or suggestions into this?
