A friend of mine is asking how he can make the brakes of his Hayabusa (previews model) better.

Any idea? Please list first the least expensive ways

how many miles are on it? maybe disassemble and clean/rebuild the calipers, add some fresh fluid as well. that should help, especially if its gettin some miles on it

I have a set of recent Hayabusa calipers (with lightweight coated pistons) on my race bike and they work great :O
Different M/C, though: 19mm radial GSX-R master cylinder. Very agressive, could be even too agressive for street.

Greetings

Genuine Suzuki Sintered Pads are a start.

1. Change the fluid

2. Strip the calipers and clean the caliper pistons, remove the seals and ensure any gunk behind the seals is removed so the seals don't nip the pistons, assemble with red rubber grease

3. Braided lines

If that lot doesn't work, fit a radial front end off a GSXR or later Hayabusa :laugh
