Re: best rear brake disk?
We are serious. 80-90% of your braking power all comes from your front brakes on a motorcycle. When you are braking HARD, you rear brake essentially becomes useless......it's not like being in a car where all 4 wheels stay well planted on the ground.
If you even tapped the rear brake here it would immediately lock, skid/skip and unsettle the whole bike because as you can see by the daylight under the tire there's pretty much no weight/traction on the rear tire for the rear brake to do anything with.
