Re: Advice on brakes for an 86 GSXR
My recommendation would be use the brakes that you currently have. I raced my limited several years with the stock setup and never felt like brakes were the limiting factor. Focus more on the suspension to allow you to carry more corner speed with less braking. Unless you are building a monster motor you will only have around 100HP which is more in line with the HP of a nicely tuned Honda F2. Just my two cents as I'm building an AHRMA bike and will use the stock brakes this year.
