Ditto!only brake upgrade i have noticed making a marked improvement is stainless steel braided brake line..
The stock brake system is sufficient to lock up the wheel, so not sure what you mean by an "upgrade". If the brake on your bike isn't performing as it should, it needs to be repaired.
I don't understand that. I'm no engineer, but since the Rebel front brake can go from slight slowing of rotor rotation to full stop, depending on how much pressure is applied, how would a larger disc improve braking?A locking brake is not the same as a good brake...with a larger disc, you may brake harder just before it locks, may do a lot of difference on changing road-surfaces.
Syreious - It's very noticeable at high speed if it is warped bad enough. It can be kind of scary to NEED brakes and feel a shudder when slowing. Mine is not quite that bad. I feel it a bit at high speed, but I am expecting to feel it so it is very noticeable, to me.7milesout, how can you tell your rotor starting to warp? I may have this issue on mine because I don't feel consistent braking but it could be just the brake pads that I need to replace too.
Anything is possible. I'll look and see if everything seems straight. Rides like a dream.I have no personal experience with aftermarket rotors, but EBC offers one, and their products are usually good quality. Personally, I would look on ebay for a used rotor from a late/low mileage model Rebel.
Is it possible the fork got tweaked and isn't perfectly straight?
