even better.

We installed the new 11.75 rotors with the yellow stuf pads and I have the brakes I wanted. In the end all that was changed was rear brake bias and pads.

The bigger rotors are better....the Yellowstuff pads are awesome.

I will play with brake bias more once everything seats in.

Meebe I will wire up the already plumbed linelock.........

Very cool... Strong and easy-to-modulate brakes are a wonderful thing.

Glad to hear you got it sorted out without changing the master. I'm sure the grippier front pads made a difference.

I've been very happy with EBC Yellows on the race dart. Great stopping power all the way from cold to hot, and not too hard on the wallet. They may not last as long as some race pads, but they're probably about even in terms of miles per dollar. (We average two 14-hour road races out of a set, with enough margin to drive home afterwards.)

Only complaint I've heard is that they're a little hard on rotors, but I don't really have a good basis for comparison.
