Hi all. The last of my shiny brake bits arrived today. EBC contour rotors, EBC GPFAX244HH pads, and Brembo 19RCS master cylinder. Two more Gee-Gaws, I won't count the pads as you can't see them Razz
Oh, the Monteiths Black beer is to lubricate the installers internals Viva la Fiesta

Beetle > I won't make myself look silly, I'll look up what they are before I ask Laughing
Edit : Ok did that, and no, not unless I can get a set real cheap. Do they make a noticeable difference ?  
I found the EBC track day pads a huge improvement over the standard pads with the standard discs and master cylinder. these discs and pads should deliver even better braking with No brake fade. These pads are not street legal, So they are not for you Street Laughing ( amused myself again  Rolling Eyes  )

They ain't cheap. Quite a bit of difference.

Beetle, todays brakepads aren't made for cast iron. I'm not so shure if that is making you happy.

The m4 make a noticeble difference. Here you get then 300 euro a set used for ebay, since a lot of sportsbikes they have them crash.
On the stelvio, it's the only upgraded brake part I have. Here the same on my daytona:

Hi Paul. Is some problems installing M4 on Stelvio? I am disapointed with braking performance of Stelvio. Or is possible install calipers from R1200GS LC?

I was about to ask this, I assume the 100mm is the mounting bolt spacing centre to centre ?
Are all M4's the same ?

No. There's two versions. M4-100 and M4-108. The second number is the mount spacing.

Brembo monoblocks have great feel and stopping power.

If you want to go real stupid on GeeGaws mate them with Sicom Ceramic composite rotors.

Fitted on one of my 1098R's. Best brakes I've ever used.

They're gold coloured Pete. Only the black ones provide superior stopping power. Black with Brembo in red. Anything else, you're wasting your time. Oh, they'll still pull you up, but girls won't talk to you.
