Brake system

Post by harley69 »

Has anyone separated the rear brake from the front ? So as to apply both front calipers with left hand and only the rear caliper with the right foot ?

I’ve read on here where some have tried it. Personally, the 1200 is too heavy to use both front brakes together without back brake support. Hell, I’ve nearly dropped mine on an occasion just using the front brake as it is now. But, hey, to each his or her own. If I had a choice, I’d rather have dual rear brakes. Anywhoo, if you can’t find it on here, there are a few other sites that have had some posts about it.
