Hi all,

Was doing some emergency braking practice on my 2019 R3 yesterday and I noticed my stopping distance increase as I continued to make practice stops. First few stops were good but after that the distance kept increasing. Anybody else run into this issue and what might be the best solution?

Never had a problem with the brakes in regular street riding just noticed it now because of repeated hard braking.
thanks!

"... What might be the best solution" ...

A. Stop doing that!
B. Brake pad condition and material will have a significant impact.
C. As can, the condition and quality of the brake fluid.

I've never had appreciable fade under racing conditions with the stock pads and fluid ... but ... we're moving the whole time (air circulation to cool off the brakes).

I'm going to assume the discs and pads are getting too hot. And like GoFaster said, there's no airflow too help cool them since you're not at a constant speed.
