I know it's race orientated, but I'm just curious if any of you have fitted reverse rotating rotors on your bike? I just came accross this tonight and I am very perplexed, but on the paper it seems to be a great idea?

here is the link that i read up on it, check out that first video. Kinda trippy...but yeah. Making me think....

Just looks like something else to break. No pun intended! If I thought about my Tiger as a sport sedan, it might make sense. I think of mine as a pickup truck. I'm also cheap, and that wheel assembly and brake certainly don't look cheap!

Just looks like a load of rubbish aimed at taking money off fools.

If they were that good Moto-GP grid would be full of them. The extra unsprung weight would be a problem. Their claims dont hold water, most modern bikes turn quick enough already. As for no tankslappers, total rubbish. It's the giroscopic effect that helps stops them. You want to ride a R1 etc with lightweight wheels and just see how much more twitchy they are.
