Front Brake Setup

Lets hear it, what are you guys front brake setup?

I ran 1 front brake Nissin caliper and mc (ZX14/6). Who else is running a single up front? Anybody running a stock single brake setup?

Never rode it on the street. I'd imagine it would be fine as long as you weren't riding hard enough to heat up the brakes. So just riding around town I wouldn't hesitate, but hitting the twisties would be a no-no.

OK, so my plan here didn't exactly work.

I ran 1 NISSIN up front, which I got for free from another member here. It seems pretty crappy for me to try and sell it, so I'm trying to find somebody with a dedicated drag bike (pref. 04-07) that could use the upgrade to the stock caliper to give it to. You know, pass it on... I figured if I asked who wanted it I'd get too many responses and instead wanted to offer it to somebody.

So lets be a little more direct here. Who is running a single shitty caliper from 04-7 and could use an upgrade. Likewise, who is running two shitty calipers and would go to a single disk setup if they had a NISSIN? Post up, tell me why you need/want it and lets see a picture of that drag bike!
