They look almost stock, I dig it.  What'd they run you, if you don't mind me asking?

Hard to believe they're so much better, Brembos or not.  With HH pads my six pot stockers with SS braided lines really work!  Stoppies with just a touch of the fingers if I'm not careful.  Very good brakes!
Ride em if ya got em

There is NO comparison to any stock busa  setup to these calipers and brackets.
Total cost was 350 for brackets and calipers. ..

My ''14 came stock with the Brembos and we put the HH pads on it before it was ever ridden and it truly does stop better than any of my other 3 Busas.

I must not be ridin' hard enough 'cause all I've ever had were the stock brakes for the last 13 years(except on my '03,had Wave rotors and stainless lines,mostly for looks)and I always get stopped just fine(may be different when track riding where you're on/off the brakes all the time).

Neither of us ride hard enuf...........we are just a bit "too long in the tooth" and afraid of "falling down and can't get up". :hys:

Yea that falling and cant get up part sucks, and the older you are the more it hurts :lol:, and I seem to hurt a lot anymore and I did not fall :lol:
The older you get do you notice you start chickening out way before the bike does
