Brembo or Nissin!?

Recommended Posts

So I got the money to buy ab brake set-up, but am not 100% sure on what M/C! Its gonna be a 2011 CRF caliper, and either a 2011 Brembo M/C with line, or 2011 Nissin(Honda) M/C with line. Like ive said in all my brake post, I would like no play at all with the hardest, most responsive lever possible, engagement from the first micrometer of movement!haha

It really shouldn't make any difference, both are good. You might mind the bore diameter in the master cylinder. The larger the bore the less travel but it will take more force to stop.

More force? As in physically pulling harder?

Yes, as the master cylinder bore size increases it takes more physical force to move against the caliper. You can buy master cylinders with different bore sizes.

when your saying with line you mean the OEM line or a braided stainless? My buddy has a yz250 with the honda setup. Hes got honda caliper, honda MC and a stainless brake line, and the shits instant. U even look at the lever wrong and it locks up tight.

Not trying to revive the thread, but I was researching on here, and found post were people were just putting a Honda M/C and it felt exactly the same as a full Honda set-up. Right now all I want is the feel and responsiveness of the Honda.
