SBS Friction will be making 3 levels of upgrade brake pads for the Street.
“The new Harley Davidson Street 500 and 750 is a great example. It is originally equipped with organic ceramic brake pads, so we recommend replacing with our ceramic H.HF compound. Should a rider want to upgrade the stopping power, then it’s as simple as replacing the OE pads with our H.CT Carbon Tec upgrade pads. And last but not least we offer a sinter metallic choice of front H.HS and rear H.LS pads. These are the only aftermarket sinter metal pads with different friction levels front and rear – and therefore the only aftermarket brake pads offering the same brake balance as the factory fitted ones; something that’s essential on modern bikes with ABS systems.”
The tires I cannot comment on as the bike I rode here in the USA had Michelins on it. They are a good tire.
I am interested to know why you think the brakes need upgraded if you have never rode one?
The one I rode stopped well within the limits for a single disc front end on a 500 CC machine.
My interest in ECB brakes is strictly so there is some pricing competition on the parts.
I have taken several test rides, just don't own one yet.
Everytime I felt the stopping power didn't match engine power. Front brakes needs to be pulled more to effectively apply. Rear brakes were almost non existent. These things can also be problem in test bike. That is why I would want a owner who has put some mileage to comment on it.
