You'll gain about twice the stopping power if you switch to front stainless steel brake lines. Those stock lines suck, then once they get hot they are even worse. You can pick up stainless lines pretty cheap too.

I have stainless steel on mine that Chris installed and if you grabbed them hard enough believe me you might find yourself in a sitution you don't want to find yourself in. But with mine like I said you would deffinately have to grab them hard and fast.

I agree stainless lines will help, but our bikes are pigs in the weight dept.

My stainless lines are definately better braking, but you'd have to resist some major G's in order to stay on our pigs long enough to do a stoppie.

Switch the lines and properly bleed thte system and it will do stoppies all day long
Not saying anything to anyone, But I'd like to see some V stoppies. I have my brakes optimized as can be and I've hammered the fronts before. Not once did I feel like that boat anchor of a rear was coming off the ground. Not saying it can't be done, but I'd like to see it. I also want to see the practice runs where bodies go over handlebars:confused::confused::confused:

I did a un-intentional stoppie on mine with the stock front lines. And I have the bone spur in my shoulder to prove it.
