So a silly question but i have to ask it .
Brembo brakes upgrade to my gen 3 , would it be that much of a difference to hard braking on the track.
I have the OEM setup at the moment but have put a good set of braided hoses on which made a big difference , if i put brembo pads in would this be worth it or should i just upgrade the lot

They are just as good as Brembo monos but for the price of Brembo 2 piece cast.

The bike stops with one finger now.

Hey , thanks for reply . I am considering them now as I upgrade.
Do you think it's not worth upgrading unless I change the master cylinder too . A few people said it's a big improvement but the upgrade cylinder needs to fitted too

You have a radial m/c, it will work good with new calipers and ss lines.

Mine (Gen 1) was not a radial m/c and it was horrible.

Accossato also makes the m/c and is cheaper than the Brembo. I only used the Brembo RCS because it was a spare I had in my parts bin.

I went with Brembo GP4-RX calipers, Brembo RCS 19 m/c, and Galfer SBK lines on my Gen 4.

Nice . I was well pleased with the extra stopping power with the monobloc brembo s I fitted . Its just getting used to dive bombing deeper into the corners now knowing that your brakes will stop you .
Seems the most unnatural feeling when your carrying so much speed for longer and then a quick squeeze and you have beaten your track mates through the corner 😉
