Not really. Call them what?
Next time you ride and are going into a hard braking corner, take your inside leg off the peg and then tell me what happens...(hint - you put more weight on your hands/arms which, if you desire, allow more braking forces to be applied)

Also Berto - where did you get that data regarding brake pressure from? My sources don't confirm that. Carbon vs steel, completely different hydraulic systems, no way comparable.

Ken, I'll try it and see what happens. Things are much better attempted, then argued about...and then finding out later what's right/ wrong. Good plan.

I'll PM you offline on the other stuff. And yeah, a MotoGP is nothing much like our own sport bikes, as much as the manufacturers want to sell us that daydream.
