    Kidding right? Contemporary Hayabusa had the same brakes as REX. They were state of the art at some point. Nuf said.

    It was you that made the comparison of a Busa to a race bike. I have had a bit of a Web search and can't find a race series that used Hayabusas. Lots of drag bikes, but they are designed to accelerate quick not decelerate.

    I suppose if they were deemed up to the job of stopping a 190-odd mph bike like the Hayabusa then they're up to the job of stopping a ZRX. Personally I just think they need too much attention if you're using the bike daily, the Nissins were cheap enough and seem much easier to live with to me. When I took them apart after 10k use there was no furring in the dust seal grooves with them just seemed one or two of the seals were swollen up.
