07 ZX-10 Front Brake Issues.
Hi Fellow ZX-10'ers
Now, I know that the 07 ZX-10 has an inherent problem with it’s front brakes so I have taken the following measures to help the issue: Braded lines, Dot 5 fluid with EBC pads however they are still not up to par.
A friend recommended the following, before going to bed:
Pull in the brake leaver as close to the throttle as it will go then secure it there with a strap, net effect is the brake leaver is engaged for eight or so hours.
Now when I do this the brakes “feel” more responsive and the brake leaver has a much more “firmer” feel to it and the “travel” (finger pull) seems a little less to engage the brakes. However as the use of the brakes goes on throughout my ride they soon return to their “spongy” state. Any ideas as to why this temporary procedure works for a short time and what could this mean?
Have bleeded the brakes several times, all good.
Also does going to an aftermarket “short” lever such as a Pazzo do anything at all to increase braking performance? Other then providing one/two fingered braking.
