Hey All, this is my first post to a great forum I've been lurking for years. I just recently upgraded all the shocks to BiTubos on my GTS and was wondering if there were any good brake upgrades available for the ABS equipped models? Preferable with 4 pot calipers. Thanks!

I've seen two different Brembo setups on SIP, was contemplating this upgrade myself

I saw those myself but was hoping there was a simple bracket solution. Something where you could use a second hand Brembo caliper. Have any of the shadetree engineers on MV figured something like that out yet?

Looking a little further ahead?
Driving just a little slower where there's a higher risk?
Michelin city grip tyres?

Saying that I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to street racing in rush hour traffic. Stupid but hey ho.

Has nothing to do with the speed I'm riding, more about stopping better in general. We have big hills here in SF so a little more breaking power is always appreciated. The shocks and brakes are arguable the two weakest points on the GTS.

I'm looking to do a shock upgrade myself, SF streets are horrible.

I have complete confidence in my brakes, they've been handling SF hills all over the city with no problems whatsoever, even with a pillon.
