Brake questions from the mechanically challenged ...

For those of you with ABS that have switched to a 21" or larger front wheel,
and you switched to a single rotor from the factory dual setup:

1. I take it the ABS gets all of it's info from just one sensor on the left hand side so going to a single sided bake system doesn't affect it at all?

2. Anyone seen any actual test data that compares the dual 11.8" brake set up with a single sided 13"? Significant braking distance difference or not? I like the look but don't want to give up any significant margin of safety.

Thanks in advance for your reply.
