Default 'Busa brakes to HD Road King;

Quite pleased with the fruits of me labour on me new brakes. Done The Old Way as well, vice, angle grinder, drill, not ordered from the parts catalogue. Hayabusa calipers from Ebay, mounting brackets from Taff's Motorcycle Emporium (me garage).

Got the same calipers on mine, from a GSXR11, why anyone buys aftermarket calipers at three or four hundred quid a go is beyond me..

Default rear caliper change

Got a 4 piston tokico as a rear brake on mine, works fine with a std HD master cylinder. On the front I've found multi pot jap brakes seem to work best with the smaller 9/16 master cylinder..

Taff

Love the idea of decent brakes on my Street Bob. I have a set of R1 calipers sat in my spares box just begging to be used on something.

Good bit of recycling that, Taff. Looks right too.

6 potters are a PITA. Good luck! I've ditched mine and gone back to the old Nissins. Much more effective.

Yeah the 4 pots have more feel to them, I had the 6 pots and they work well but feel wooden.

HD brakes are good, depends on model I guess, all 3 of mine have decent brakes, evo dyna is prob the worst, but triple disc so it's fine.

They're just about adequate, but who the hell wants their brakes to be just adequate? My Twin-Cam Dyna's got a triple disc set-up that's just about up to the job, but I want to put Jap brakes on when I can. One thing you can't have too much of is brakes.

There's more than callipers involved though Shifty, geometry (on a custom) suspension, tyres, riding style and ability, overall weight of vehicle and riders, road surface, temp and weather, not to mention pads and discs hoses and fluid (condition, sizes and types).
Taff rated his old brakes, I'm more than happy with mine, none are merely adequate, try riding a shovel with banana callipers.

No harm in any of that Taff, made a nice job of it as well, stop tinkering with your bike and you'd die a little inside, that's my take on it anyroads
