isn't that the truth. the stock suspension and brakes on the S2R, and quite a few other models isn't very good. Even if I upgraded to the 4 piston calipers that I have left over from a superbike, the gixxer brakes would probably still be better. especially if I used stainless lines. that doesn't even take into account the crappy forks on the duc!Zatoichi931 said:You actually increase the capabilities of the bike.
