you should always be using both brakes on the street. there's a valid need to be able to get maximum breaking from both front/rear in an emergency situation. it could save your hide.

having the ability to use 100% of your brake power is quite handy when that douchclown cager turns left in front of you

Back brakes scare me. Last tim I used it, the bolt that held the rear pedal bar to the calipers came off and the caliper got pinned in the swingarm

try tightening the chassis bolts every now and again :shrug


seriously though, my k7 750 back brakes feel WAY more effective after swapping pads/stainless lines. the stock rear brakes felt like they had no power, and they'd lock up all of a sudden. Now i can actually feel the rear slowing the bike some, and it's easier to modulate if it does lock

Quick question:

Since Ive never done brake line work before, I just assume I would replace all the fittings if Im replacing all the lines.

Or is that overkill and its it fine to use the old fittings?
