Everything I have heard about these guys is they are the best around, but have no personal history with them. Have used Hawg Halters on my '90 softail, worked great and the guys were real honest to talk to.(told me I probably wouldn't tell the diference between the 4 piston and 6 piston calipers on the street)

That being said there are 3 ways to increase braking performance:
1. increase rotor diameter (better mechanical advantage)
2. increase caliper clamping force (again Mech. advantage)
3. better friction material (more whoa per square inch)

Ok the real deal is figure out 2 and 3 between all the marketing hype without costing you a couple of grand and let me know the results please.

My thoughts are, just using the front Brembo calipers with stainless brake lines, which should be a noticeable increase of braking compared to the HD units.

You know what I would do is call brembo and ask them what they think. If they are honest folks(and I have heard that they are) they will give you an honest answer. I am sure this is something they have done and documented. Good luck and let us know how it works out one way or the other.

I had brembo's on an earlier ride and they were fantastic. The two piston fronts stopped better than the 4 piston with stainless lines I have now .

I would a like better system on my EG, has anyone tried the Brembo front calipers?

I don't think the 12.6 inch rotors are necessary, I already have 11.5 floaters.

I don't have them on my bike but I do in my car. If the scooter version performs as well as the auto version then those brakes are terrific! Let us know how it all turns out!

If posible test ride a Ducati bike and you will feel what brembo brakes are.
Possible one of the best brake solutions you can buy, , but with the brembo full floating disks, not only callipers
