Finally picked up my 2008 SB and have been running it in over the last few days. Thanks everyone for helping me in selecting this awesome bike!
However, after riding sports bikes for many years, the brakes on SB absolutely suck! Don't get me wrong, they certainly stop you, especially if you are travelling at a reasonable velocity. Should you try stopping quickly from 100+ km/hr, the SB brakes are barely adequate.
I did a quick US forum search on and found that some guys have been looking at fitting Brembo or PM calipers/rotors on your Dyna.
However I don't think that anyone has actually done it and happy with the results!
Any ideas or suggestions anyone? Naturally I would very much like to replace the bolt-on parts rather than actually start replacing forks/wheels, etc.
twin disc f/end can be done using V-rod parts, need to change wheel to cast as well.(i think)
Think Dazza has a plan to put a fatbob f/end on his lowrider.
Only thing that dictates what ya can and can't do with a HD is money my friend.
the FXDB upgrade to dual disks seems to have ceased at '05 model and linked to cast rim
Just go to a PM 6 piston caliper and full floating disc with Lyndall pads and braided lines and you wont need twin rotors.
ya lucky ya didnt buy a evo then
