Brakes

I have a 2000 model and my front brakes really sucked. Since these bikes require the use of alot of front brake I decided to go all out and get the Fastline brake line and some new pads. My front brakes work very well now and it took me awhile to get used to the new stopping power since I was now coming into corners too slow.

Anyways I would recommend just getting new brake pads first cuz they made the biggest difference. The brake line gave the brakes a firmer feel, but not as firm as I had expected. I ended up getting the Braking CM44 pads, I have heard alot of good things about the DP Pro MX pads but the shop was out of them.

Be sure that your brakes are bled properly, there should be alot of tips on this site about brake bleeding.

Good Luck...

oops, this was supposed to be a reply to rvanliere.... Pushed the wrong button. hehe

dmx, your right about the 2000 brakes, they stink in stock form. I went aftermarket too, I have the same stuff with the addition of EBC's 280mm front rotor. The beast will definately stop now.
