REAR BRAKES
« on: September 26, 2017, 06:25:22 AM »

hi anyone that can shed some light
can your rear brakes be connected to the front brakes so that the lever application works both front and rear brakes at same time.
it works with a car system can it work on a bike
i would be very interested to hear some opinions on this.

Some Honda's have this, but I get the impression many folk don't like it.  I think riders like to have the choice of how to brake......never tried one with this feature myself though.

I would say most if not all riders prefer to brake manually and decide how much braking the front and the rears get .

It can be done, but it's not as simple as joining everything up. Stuff has to be put in to make sure that the rear brake doesn't take too much of the force off the front, and that when you jam the rear on, that it doesn't just keep pushing through until the fronts lock up.

The VFR800 system will, with some modification, go on a Hyosung.

i dont understad what is the vrf800 system
is there a kit you can buy that will fit my 2013 hyo 650gtr
if this had some sort of pressure control so that you can adjust the amount of breaking force applied so  as to minimise lockup that would be great
has anyone tried this?

The Honda VFR800 is a motorcycle that had a linked brake system.

While the VFR800 was rather ahead of its time in many ways, it's quite an old bike now, and it's possible to buy the braking system from used spares dealers, and fit it to the Hyosung. Because brake line bolts are mostly universal, you can keep the awful standard TCTC calipers the Hyosung comes with, if you don't want to have custom brackets made to fit better calipers.

FALCO,

It sounds like you are trying to buy something that someone has already developed and adapted to suit a Hyosung. There is no such thing. If you really want this, you will have to build it yourself.

As Cloud said, the system exists on the VFR800. You may try to buy the braking system from a wrecked VFR800 and adapt it to suit a Hyosung. This is achievable.

As stigger said, just buy a Honda VFR800.

As spit said, most riders would prefer this to be something manual, instead of an automated thing. No matter how clever the system, there will be times when it gets things wrong.

i would still like to hear from someone that has actually had the experience in having such a system without going out and buying a vfr800 or doing the mods to find its disadvantages and being dissapointed in the results.

No idea personally. Maybe ask a VFR800 owner? Expect the usual biases that owners of a particular bike have. Maybe find a review? ..at least you now have a model number.

To my knowledge, it's never been done on a Hyosung.

Nobody likes them just like nobody likes ABS. I'd personally have both because I want to maximise performance.
