06 Front brake update


Recommended Posts

So a couple months ago I picked up a stock 06 that had maybe 10 hrs on it. Still had the stock tires!!! Anyhow, the front brake sure leaves something to be desired. I had a 08 YZ250F and my brother has a 08 CRF250 and they both have wonderful front brakes. I know that in 07 they upgraded the master cylinder to have the articulated lever w/ the pushrod. So, my question is... To bring mine up to the level that I'm used to, do I need to spend the $140 on a new front cyl + lever, or would a $70 steel braided brake line get it close enuff for 1/2 the cost. Mine has ok power but is kinda mushy and doen't have good feel to it. And yes, I have bled the fluid w/ not much improvement. Thanks!

I have a 07 450 and the stock front brakes sucked, so here`s what I did to have great front brakes.

Use your 06 master cylinder, it holds more volume than the 07,which I replaced with an 06.

Get a s/s front brake line.

Get the EBC 108 mm front brake rotor kit

Now go and front brake your brains out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
