I am not happy with the power of the front brake. Especially, when braking on high speed, it takes the bike too long to stop. Braking is safety. Fitting 11mm master cylinder (from Rebel 300), made a definite improvement, as the stock one feels like pressing on wood. Still, it is far from where I would want it to be. Changing brake pads to Brembo made some improvement but not enough. I am a kind of perfectionist as far as brakes are concerned. For instance, in Versys 1000, I changed the rotors, fitted Brembo radial calipers, and Brembo radial MC. It is perfect now. The stopping power is enormous and yet there is the feel and enough softness to the braking. So coming back to V3, the only thing that I can think of as being flawed is the front rotor. I found only one company that is making it, and they do make great stuff. this rotor is fully floating.
