    Busa brakes work... with proper tools and supplies. They would never be 2 finger brakes though.



    Granted groves are clean (rotary brush on Dremel) what dear collective describe as air issues are most likely incorrectly lubed pistons...






    Good lines greatly improve feel

    One advantage of the Bandit/90s GSXR Nissin four pots is that they're anodised internally so aren't susceptible to the furring corrosion you get in the dust seal grooves on the Tokico's as well as being much simpler and also cheaper to rebuild! Blue spots are the same. A lot of the Tokico problems seem to just stem from that furring under the dust seals that gradually stops the pistons working equally.

    Owned 4 x ZRX1200, 1 x ZRX1100 all had 6 pots.

    Bled the front brakes on ALL of them for new fliuds or refresh.................never ever had a bleed problem other than master cylinder issue ????

    Can only think the people who have had bleeding issues cannot be doing it correctly. ?

    How many 6 pots do you see on race bikes ?

    Weight is not the issue, they weigh or can be made to weigh the same as 4 pots.

    You dont see them because they overheat the middle of the brake pads. Large pads, large surface area + poor air flow = reduced braking.

    I have had 1 x 11 and 2 x 12's and no problem bleeding the brakes, they need regular maintenance. Trouble is a lot of dim wits (sorry I mean owners), think servicing their bike means changing the oil and filter!

    Blah blah blah........................the Rex isn't a race bike!

    How many indicators, luggage racks, tanks bags etc etc do you see on a race bike?

    For the benefit of the obtuse or pedantic...its about braking efficiency and performance, not what specific designation the ZRX falls into ....
