I have a 99 gixxer 750 that I recently purchased with over 11K. Then front brake has to be pulled about an inch from the grip for the bike to brake hard. I can't get any burnouts going and forget about stoppies. I took the bike to a suzuki dealer and he said the brakes were norman. Does anyone else have this problem? Also, the lever is set on 1.

They don't sound super bad but just bleed the brakes and make sure your pads are in good condition. For better stopping power I have had excelent luck with the EBC 'HH' pads graemlins/thumbup.gif

I had them bled and they still suck. I am gonna go with the ebc pads. How much should the job cost? I don't want to get screwed my the mechanic.

did you adjust the brake lever knob right at the lever push handle out then change the number see if that helps

Setting "2" is how it's set delivered from the factory. Also, you may want to check and/or replace your brake lines if none of the simple things we've mentioned work.

Well there are a few things you need to do...
1) use Motul RBF600 brake fuild
2) replace the lines with SS lines. At 4 years the stocker need to be replaced, they get to soft.
3) get EBC HH pads...
After that you will stop so fast you wont know what to do with it.. images/icons/grin.gif
