Ive seen them. No experience, but hope they have some kind of special rotor to take that kind of heat without warping.

Have since 6/2012. Over 12k. Love em. Braking great. They look great. Nobody has them. Cons: if u have PM calipers, hv to machine spacers. But glad I did, gets lots of compliments and they work

Thx for the info.. I've seen them in magazines. Any problems while braking pull to or pulling down on one side while braking.. I want to use my stock caliper.
Can you post a pic of your setup. Thx.

Not that I know anything, but, the point of going single sided is to show off the wheel.......two calipers is only going to clutter and cover up the left side (and a bitch to clean up around the calipers) there's no braking problems with a single sided setup with a single 6-piston caliper

Doing homework is never a bad thing, but if it comes down to money......your gonna buy a single matching rotor anyway and selling the stock late model rotors and calipers will more than pay for a new HHI (or PM) 6 piston caliper, I usually get $400 for the brembo setups :D

13" cog drive or FULL floating rotor and a 6 piston caliper is my vote, tried and true setup in both looks and performance :thumbup:

Depending on the wheel you choose.....if you ever do :p LOL....will dictate the type of rotor you can go with, if you go with a matching rotor. Cog drive takes the cake, and true full floating is a close second. My recommendation would be to stay away from the 1 piece stamped rotors

When it comes to brakes, you do get what you pay for

Food for thought if nothing less

Thx, that's my plan, (2 piece floating rotor). I don't have any experience with the Cog style. I just know they're top of the line type of rotor. I'm finalizing my list for an early Christmas if the Govt can open back up.. This working for free sucks.. Thx God I plan for times like these..

Is Ebay the easiest place to sell stock Harley brakes? I'm waiting on a wheel now and in the same decision making process that Q was in a few months back. I have an 09 CVO RG
