Q: I have installed a left hand rear brake lever on my ktm, will this give me more braking power?
Over 3 years ago
To lockup my wheel I have to use my whole hand and pull hard. I would like to be able to use one or two fingers to get the job done. Will this oversized rotor work for me?
Do you have a better idea or do you think this will work for me?
A: The over size braking rotors do provide some additional braking force as the rotor doesn't spin as fast as it is passing though the brake caliper due to its extra diameter. This allows the brakes to slow down the wheel easier. Depending what master cylinder you used also will have an effect on the braking power, a master cylinder with a large piston could also apply more pressure with less force from you.

A: I have this rotor kit on my '12 300XC. I too, have the Rekluse rear handbrake, but i also remove the brake pedal as well, so stopping power is very important to me. I also use motomaster brand "racing" pads. They are a soft material and seem to provide the most friction. They don't last as long as some others, but they offer strong handbrake power.
