The stock brake caliper, for my weight (about 200 lbs with gear) felt weak. I could hamfist the front brake lever and I was in no danger of locking up the tire or doing a stopping. The stock front brake felt incapable.
Having ridden a hundred miles with the new P4 Brembo caliper it does feel more sufficient. I still have the stock master cylinder on the bike for now. But it seems OK until I can get a fine threaded banjo bolt.
My old breaking technique used a lot of engine breaking because the stock front brake felt so weak. Now I trust the brake significantly more with the P4 Brembo and don't have to pull so hard to get her to stop quickly.
I wish I had a good wrecking yard. We have the year around riding weather here in So. Cal. It would be a blessing to get inexpensive parts.
