Looking for a 2008 front brake set up for my 2005

Recommended Posts

My brakes suck....

I changed the pads, bled them, did the handle bar turning zip ty trick. I can still pull the lever into the grip and barley slow down.

I'm looking to get my brakes back to what they should be, I want them to feel like my buddies 2008 where if you slam on the front brake you go over the bars...

So i've been looking to buy a 2008 or similar front brake set up, if anyone is parting out a crf and wants to get rid of the brakes let me know. I'm looking for the whole kit, including lever (well itd be a bonus not necessary), res. , brake line, master cylinder etc. everything except the rotor.

Thanks!

Do you have the orginal brake line? Brake lines get weak and will bulge out and make the brakes feel weak. As for bleeding it's has always been a pain in the ass untill someone told me about speed bleeders, they replace the OEM bleeders and have a check valve inside. Bleeding the braked with them is as easy as putting gas in the bike.
