Has anyone used the Pretech 6 pot calipers (left & right) on their tube Buells?
Are they as good as they look?
Cheers

Very nice. For less than the cost of the calipers and extra disc, I fitted a set of GSXR forks with radial calipers and had some bespoke discs made up at 320mm diameter by EBC. They were fine, but a combination of needing the cash and not needing any more braking than the stock caliper and disc, triggered me to sell the whole set up to dearest Willybuell. He still has them on his X1 and still likes them.

I am in the UK on holidays as I type, so decided to visit Steve at Pretech in Reading and buy a pair of six pots for one of my S1s. The cailpers look beautiful polished up. Anyway, I also got 20% off for being a UKBEG member, which was a surprise bonus. Steve and his staff are nice people to deal with and judging from the content of their display cabinet are very skilled in what they do.
