Brakes of Street 750

The brakes on my street 750 are weak and doesn't inspire confidence. I have got this checked at HD service centre but it was not of much help. This seems to be a problem with most of Street 750 owners are facing. Will request for inputs from Members and ideas to rectify within HD warranty frame!

Seems like a lot of people are complaining about the brakes. Mine seem just fine to me. They stop me every time I have used them.

Lead, follow, or get out of the way !

The bike on which I did my test ride of the Street 750 at the dealers had particularly weak brakes. But my Street 750 (The Therapist) does not have that problem. They work pretty well. On this topic I only wish HD comes up with ABS (at least optional) in the near future.

Would you ever consider going aftermarket if it proves that how the stock street brakes are, are normal?

Bleed them first, soft lever sounds like air in the system. THat will usually fix everything. Change to steel braided lines as well...

Are you waiting for HD to address the issue or are you going to move onto another bike?
