Has anyone upgraded their brake rotors on a K100RS?  There has been some talk of upgrading the entire front fork assembly on this motorcycle, but I hate to make so many changes.  Are the original brakes good enough?  Would they be improved significantly with new rotors and new brake pads?

I already have an aftermarket fork brace on this machine.  I'm somewhat inclined to keep the setup I have.

Thank you!

You can use reinforced flexible pipes like this ...

there are a number of upgrades john
first an possibly the best is to fit braided brake lines as already suggested , but dont forget to do the top line as well (master to through tube )

there is now a full floating disc option available as well , fits in exactly the same way as normal but has bobbins between disc and rotor
thirdly there is a choice of pads ...sintered gives you more pullup power but wears disk faster .... take note some pads are better than others as well , even in the same category

just some suggestions without changing the front end that I have seen  or done .

You can try cast iron rotors instead of the stainless ones. It's a better braking material and (surprisingly) doesn't wear out so fast. It's not so prone to ridging either. There is a downside: look at the front wheel on my avatar. That's rust, not mud. It's been flung off the discs.

abord un doute le meilleur est à adapter les conduites de frein tressées comme déjà suggéré, mais n'oubliez pas de faire la ligne supérieure ainsi (maître à travers le tube) il ya maintenant une option de disque flottant complet disponible ainsi , s'adapte exactement de la même manière que la normale, mais a des canettes entre le disque et le rotor , troisièmement, il ya un choix de touches ... fritté vous donne plus de puissance pullup mais porte disque plus rapide .... prendre note des pads sont mieux que d'autres, ainsi , même dans la même catégorie que quelques suggestions sans changer la fin avant que j'ai vu ou fait.




There are two choices: replace the three genuine parts or two flexible pipes directly from the master cylinder.

Just check the sintered pads will fit the earlier calipers. I recall reading something about them not fitting the early calipers.
