I bought a red pair a yr ago but the tires just won't wear out............. Oh.... of course.... I need to ride it more LoL : confused:
Thanks mate, the 320mm brake rotors + gripy pads gave the best brake results of all the brake mods that I have done, I will be fitting my Brembo mater soon but am still looking for a reasonable set of Brembo calipers.Always nice to watch your thread...so that it is: when you´ve finished your MT09 MK1, simply buy the 2017 MK2! The 320mm brake rotors are waiting to hop on mine, too - looks great! As the rest of your bike does, of course.

One thing I have found is quite a difference between the different brake levers as in brake feel, the differences are quite a lot & can only put it down to the measurements between the centre to centre between the lever pivot bolt & the centre point of the master cylinder push rod & how much the lever mount preloads the master cylinder plunger, as I have found some of the china levers the front brake feels a little spongy with more lever travel but has greater force & other levers have less lever travel & the brake feels hard & firm.
These are my latest levers below, the lever is firm with little brake lever travel quite noticeable from the ones I took off with the top click lever, they have 80 turn click adjustments compared to 6 on the lever type, I changed to these as I could not find a lever distance that I liked one lever click was to much in each direction & these work well with all those fine adjustments, they cost Oz$36.00 off EBay.
That sir is genius and exactly the kind of advice I have been looking for. Going to try it now. I'll update shortlyUndo the clutch cable at the lever end, rap many layers of electrical or making tape either side of the bend, then slide two ring spanners over the tape then pull the two spanners together this will open up the bend so the cable can be routed correctly & not dent or scratch the metal tube on the cable. I never had this problem on my 2014 & 2016 MT09 but did on my 2017 model, the bares came off my 2016 09.
Just an example below on how I bent mine, just make sure you use lots of tape.
