Before I got the V, I rode a 88 Honda 650 GT Hawk. That bike had a single disk on the front with a two piston caliper. The stopping power from it was very good. With two fingers I could stop far better than the V with it's twin disks. Stoppies were no problem with enough control to do them in the rain. I have replaced the lines with stainless, helped a little. But for a total right now panic slam your eyes into the faceshield stop, forget it. I need help. Could it be as simple as a different brake pad? Do I need to try a different master cylinder to put more fluid to the brakes?
