Art,

Just making sure you understood that I thought S.A.M. would jump in on the "pulling your nipples" comment. Can't see how they didn't jump all over that one, I sure would've.

Picked up a MightyVac today and will bleed the brakes dry, remove the nipples and get the correct sizes off of them.

Talked to Whitney at Speed Bleeders, nice lady BTW, and she said all the info they had on bikes comes from customers, so they're dependent on riders to let them know the sizes. Not suprisingly, she said ALL Auto and Motorcycle manufacturers refuse to give out any info on parts to the competition. She added that she'd be willing to ship other sizes, extras, to make sure that I was covered. Very cool.

As a tip she added that I should keep and use the OEM bleeders to get the new lines prepped. After the new Master Cylinder and lines are ready for prime time, THEN switch out the OEMs for the Speed Bleeders. They don't work well on dry systems.

Then you can change your Avatar back !

Re: Brakes questions 3 years 6 months ago #38

This is the that I will talk about this obviously misunderstanding by Mark (itgoes) about my unintentional statement in a previous post here for which I received far too many emails from Mark with indirect threats to "call me out" if I were to promote certain parts on the site and to even be called a name which I will not re-quote here.

I even apologized to Mark saying that I was sorry if he took it the way and it was never my intention or did I even have him in my mind when I wrote the post. He did accept my apology with the hint that I did make the statement intentionally and that is what annoys me. That is so far from the facts.

So, I will put this in the history books but had to put the TRUTH of the matter out there and not some misguided personal "feeling".

Re: Brakes questions 3 years 6 months ago #39

I'm sorry if I'm hijacking this thread, but this question is on topic.
I would just like to know if there is a complete Brembo brake system for our Maxs, or is there a brembo system for an R1 that would fit the Max? Or any other brake brand for that matter?
The only complete brake system I've seen for Max is the Beringer one on www.cannesmotoservices.com site.
I'm not too familiar with Beringer, so I'd would like to hear some opinions.

The Max and the R1 share the same brakes in the front (I think)? Brembo does not list brakes for the new R1 but the list on their site may not be up to date. You would think they would have them for the R1 seeing as how popular the bike is. Of course the Max front master is already a Brembo part...not sure whether their aftermarket version would be any different internally.
