Better Bonnie Brakes

1006 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  WANG
I've noticed that a number of the photos of New Bonnevilles posted on this forum show that EBC floating front discs are widely used. In fact, I use one (along with HH pads, an adjustable brake lever, Metzler tires, and careful bleeding). I know that there is much available to improve the brakes even more. Can any of you suggest additional upgrades? Reasonable cost is preferred...thanks.

The bike already has good brake lines, Ray Charles could see that.
You can put your hands on a swank Brembo job for about $250. That should give a little better squeeze on the stock caliper, it would probably complement one of those Pretech calipers nicely as well. Both would total to be a cool $750 brake upgrade, and it is still a whole lotta bike to slow down with one brake. It seems like it would work better than the OEM combo, though.
