Brakes on my X11

7 posts in this topic

Hi, my X11 runs really well apart from the breaks.

They are not as responsive for the power and weight of my bike.

I am planning to change the pads and clean the callipers this weekend but have two questions

1/ which break pads do you recommend 

2/ Is it worth spending £266 with Goodridge to buy braided break hose kit

Make sure the pads are "sintered"

I would go EBC HH pads ,I had Goodridge's very 1st hose Kit and had to get them to change it to fit the X , we got there in the end and it was a good kit , it is a pig to bleed though , I ended up delinking which was great , then went for a CBR front end

I find you need to put brake grease on the caliper sliders twice a year and use sintered pads. For a bike this powerful brakes need to be decent. Mine are linked and they are fine.

Hi au51

 

Keep and eye on the German eBay, there was a guy on there, who I have seen selling brand new radiator fairing parts (left side, right side and center grill) at damn good prices too.

It is the same guy, I think who is selling this part: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Honda-CB-1100-SF-X18-radiator-grille-Genuine-new-Kuhlergitter-Gitter-Kuhler/362581513541?fits=DEM_Make%3AHonda&epid=1214076409&hash=item546b8ad545:g:2GAAAOSwbPNaebej

Failing that the link below may well be worth a look.
