Default 97 XLH-Dual Brembo Brakes

So after a long wait, I finally got my front end together. IT's been a while in the making (ever since DAN did his) but with my bike being a 97. It was a little more then a bolt on install.

The end result is amazing. I can pull the bike to a rapid stop with my index finger and nothing else.. I haven't tried to do a Stoppie yet, BUT One day my balls will out weigh my brain and I'll try it.






These things are massive and BEAUTIFUL.

I love the pattern on the new PIRELLI NIGHT DRAGON TIRES..

Beautiful work Redd ... belongs in Museum of Modern Art.

I grew up with old iron on drum-drum brakes, and now with double front discs I agree -- the Sporty stops like a performance bike aughta. Ain't never going back. Now put a fork brace on that thing and you'll feel like the bike is riding on rails.

Did you have to change the wheel, or do it to keep pace with those pretty Brembo clamps? Did you get specs on the width/spacers or just eyeball the alignment? How was the job replacing your right side lower fork to get the mount for the second disc?

How did you bleed the lines? I swapped steel braided lines for the stock rubber ones this Summer and I am still trying to get the sponginess out of them.

Looks good. Bet you're happy to have it completed...

Just let me know when you are going to try that stoppie.
I either want to be far away, or manning the video camera!

That is the best dual disc set up on a solid mount I ever saw, super nice job. Now for some questions, Did the late model sliders work with your stock fork tubes and damper rods? could you have used your stock front wheel and axle if you used some sliders off a o4 that had a 3/4 axle.

Great lookin' setup. Nice work. If you don't mind telling us how much did it run you (ball park figure)?

Yep, that was the first question on my mind, too.
