Hey all. I've exhausted the search button on this topic, and read through nearly 3 or 4 pages of threads on every related topic i could find. just wanted to share what's going on with my bike and see if anybody could offer some insight/advice on problems i may face, or other options i may have not considered at this point.
I've slowly been turning my 05 ten into a track monster with as much top end stuff as i can afford over time. I've gone through the standard run of the mill power mods (full system, custom maps for the PC3,TRE,blah blah blah), then i was on to suspension (GMD and ohlins are my new favorite people), and the bike has become so powerful now on the track that during my last race i finally experienced more brake fade than i was comfortable with, and it seriously messed up all my braking markers and reference points in the middle of the track weekend...needless to say, i missed a few and was introduced to the gravel traps again (and one oh sh*& experience coming off a banked straight in 5th and holding on for dear life on the grass, thank the lord for there being over 90 yards of runoff area and somehow helping me keep it up when i swore on everything i was going down).
so this has been my braking setup until now:
Stock 05 calipers
stock 05 rotors
goodridge SS lines (04/05)
DP HH+ pads
05/06 636 radial master cyl.
I also noticed that i managed to warp my left rotor somehow, so i took it as a sign that it was definitely time to pull out the check book for new brakes.
I went ahead and ordered:
-Braketech Axis Iron front rotors
-ferodo carbon/ceramic pads (will get the part # tomm., they were the ones reccomended by braketech today on the phone for the track and these rotors)
-motul RBF600 fluid
here is my dilemma. Since JDgun beat me to the punch on those brembo HP's i was lusting after (fair and square. hope you're enjoyin 'em
), i am considering several different budget options for the front now, which are:
-ZX14 (or 07 zx7) calipers
-rebuild of my stock tokico's with fresh seals
i am leaning more towards the ZX14 calipers, as they seem to offer the best bang for the buck, so to speak, and should have no problem accepting my gen 1 SS lines hooked up to my 636 radial master cyl., but the R1 monoblocs are considerably cheaper and seem to have a fair number of true believers as well (however, they may pose a problem and require a new set of lines).
so let's hear what the experienced gentlemen out here have to say...
afterthought: does anyone know if the pads intended for stock gen1 10 calipers will work with zx14 calipers >? i don't think so, but it's worth a shot.
