Default Re: Wrong too

Have you ever seen the rear-braking system on an RC30?



Hint: Pay particular attention to the lever-arm arrangement and the floating caliper.



This exercise isn't to belittle you, rather it's to educate you.



That's your homework assignment: Find photos of an RC30 and study them. Report your observations and conclusions.

His idiotic geo-political commentary is entertaining enough.



In a thread that's actually about motorcycles, he really won't' have much to say.



Plus on a sportbike, when you'r'e hard on the brakes, your rear wheel is probably not touching the ground.

I say you buy, fix it up really nice, get bored with it, and then sell it to me cheap.

I never used my rear brake very much until I went to Danny Walker's American Supercamp flat track school. That experience changed my moto-life!



I have seen the light, no more high speed corner carving for me. I've become a motard-boi seeking the tightest possible corners, dirt or pavement (or even better, dirty pavement) to back it in.



With the slipper clutch on the Duc if I'm on the rear brake going into a corner & bang it down a gear the back end steps out & the tire gives a little chirp, good fun!
