Caliper options

Did a search, couldn't find anything on it.

Members who have upgraded their front calipers, what is the best IYO

Looking at arlen ness or HHI, just a simple caliper upgrade over the stock black HD brembos, I thought about chrome HD but they are a lil pricey for what you get and I like the clean look og HHI or Arlen Ness

HHI. Get it from native custom baggers, they have a hell of a deal on them. Talk to Paul.

I am sorry

wchamberlain, I am sorry but this is out of my area of what I do. I do not consider looks, just performance in braking.

Sooo....what are you saying, that because he cares about how they look you can't offer your opinion on brake upgrades?

I did not say that, I said I only do the best performance. I can not give any sort of recommendation on looks, I am unqualified in that field. We make braking products that are found nowhere on earth but here or my associates which offer the same product, all original. That is my qualification. I really get sick and tired of every time I post there is some smart ass person who puts a negative spin on my posts. I try and help all members so I qualify my answers first by asking questions than responding back either an answer or why I can not help which is common courtesy. This forum makes me not wish to support or answer any posts, like I need to spend my time providing what information I do have.

When you actually make a product and offer it to the public, providing the actual engineering to make it work than put it into production, than you will understand. Here I am wasting my time again. I provide the only Carbon 320mm rotor (not MMC but CMC) that weighs in at 1.8 pounds for a Harley. I also provide a 320mm rotor for all front HD wheels be it hub or spoke mount along with adapters for using your stock HD Brembo or real Brembo calipers. I am unqualified to say or give glamor advice so I say nothing on that subject as stated. Do you actually think I wish to post this response, truthfull and to the point with no snide or hidden meaning, I can be doing way more things than this POS post about useless drivel.

I thought about it and I actually do have better things to do with my time than try to explain why your high horse attitude brings questioning posts. You really do sound like a D-bag when you post like that.

Would it take more time to say you can't comment on looks or actually post a picture of what you have to offer? Sometimes better performance has a way to look better and sometimes tougher. Let's be real, Harley touring bikes are not performance machines. Most of us do care about looks too.
