IF you are a viewer to this thread and you are reading this I Shervin Asemani, assure you that Generation 1 has excellent front Brakes with outstanding stopping power. I have ridden, tested, overloaded the brakes and I have pictures on my webpage in the forum of an Actual Gen 1 ZX-10R and I am telling you the front brakes of Gen 1 are more than great.
If you read someone try to come play cat and mouse that no the brakes are garbage, it is not because they are a new member or have no picture on their membership to prove anything toward their Own experience towards Gen 1 brakes only; it is all that and it is the fact they do not have identity to prove and to stand on what they are saying.
I do have identity, I do own an actual gen 1 at this very moment, I have pictures that you can see and I am telling you gen 1 has excellent front brakes.
They are over graded for street in fact in my opinion.
When it comes to race, there is absolutely no brake pad, brake rotor or caliper that can resist human force. The full Carbon, the full Ceramic, the classified material used in F1, Leman, Moto GP, and such, they all brake great until some point. There is a point that they can not stand the pressure of human demand in a race.
About hard braking or not braking on gen 1 regarding front brakes, once I raced with a great rider and I applied brake at 160mph (-/+5mph) and I did a stoppie that I still remember until this moment. I did not want to do stoppie, I just had to reduce speed and gear changing would not correspond with the time being at that time; I just went straight to brakes because I was about to have an almost immediate impact and down shift would results impact at 150mph (I had about 0.1 second to the target) and brakes perhaps results 120mph impact therefore, I went straight to brake. I only brake for about 1 second max and after the stoppie my speed was at 70mph!!! What is so interesting is the fact that the other rider was riding a new Yamaha R6 (2006+ model) and in 2 points that i went to 170mph i slowed down for him to keep the race fair -since R6 top speed is about 170mph-so it was all about acceleartation, deceleration and riding.
This race happended in 2009 or 2010 on a Sunday. His bike was black, He was black (African American), and he was wearing full race suit and his kneed pad on the suit was rubbed (he had turned with his knee down), he was an older guy that look young in his 40's i would say, he was a great racer and great rider but he was not an experienced rider (there are things you do in a race that shows your level of driving). We race for only 5 minutes and we travel about 15 miles. Another aspect, after i exit (exit can be refer to exit in a race track) he stopped behind me and came very gently and said "nice bike with a smile" and i answer "Thanks! You too!". Another aspect, there was something very unique about that bike. That bike was almost full black and it had very bright LED light on the sides of his front fender in such way that the LED were vetical to the ground. I would estimate it had 10LED on right and 10LED on the left on front wheel. The LED were white or light blue.
I said all this but the only reason that i am alive is because God wanted to not take my life that day, otherwise i just saw myself gone already.
You are saying gen 1 front brakes are bad, I am telling you the problem are not the front brakes; The problem is something else or perhaps the rider.
At the end of the day, it is the matter of Rider and Driver not the matter of the car or bike. For some, does not matter what you give them, they are never winners.
Do the masses a HUG favor and do not spread untruths, bogus pontificating garbage as it is in no way helpful when such things are done. Say goodnight to the good people shervin assemani
And for some, it is just the matter of another negative post in the effort to scream their poisioned depressed lonely world just for a small look.
big daddy you have over 34k posts and they are bash after bash after bash with no definition whatsoever. Perhaps, you are a depressed outdated useless being and you dont' want to do any effort to change that instead you bash innocoent people first name and last name and opinions online without mentioning your first and last name and even a definition.
bigdaddy, You bashed those who are trying to add something to this world because you wish you could be that inteligent or at least useful but you are not and instead you bash them in attempt to get a meaning to your meaningless being. Your 34,443 posts all together do not even worth another new post in resopnd. I quoted your post here, so you will read this message. My message to you is, try to be more kind to yourself, try to recognize and respect the ones around you. When you accomplish that then try to use your powers to help others and you will get comfort. I promise you that until the day that you are going to bash me or bash this and bash that and bash other, you are going to be lost forever.
I am Shervin Asemani.
