Thoughts on removing rear brake all together? It sure is a lot of weight just sitting there. The only time I use it is if I go off track. What is the benefit of keeping it besides that? Will I pass tech without it? What are the AFM rules regarding it that you know of?
Most organizations, if not all (track day or race) require the rear brake to be operational.
Noodles Racing would like to thank the following sponsors for their support in the 2012 CSBK season:
GP BIKES TRIUMPH, EUROCORSA PERFORMANCE (Bitubo suspension, Spidi leathers, Rizoma rearsets, Power Bronze windscreens), ARMOUR BODIES, MOTOAIRBAG CANADA, MOTOVAN, HINDLE EXHAUST.
I bet you wouldn't even notice a difference in weight reduction.
It doesn't even matter, you seriously need it for when you run off track. Even smoothly touching the front brake after your off track will send you to the ground so fast that by the time you get up and realize what happened, you'll realize that one of your collarbones is broke
Here is an idea for you dude... My rear rotor is there right now... For about 90 bucks (includes return shipping) you can mail your rear rotor to this company and they will remove about a pound from it... If I am correct, a pound of rotational weight is the same as saving 5 pounds from sprung weight... Might be 3 pounds... Either way, you still pass tech, retain the safety net when you do run off the track, and you save weight...
