Do a quick search and you will find that many people have made that upgrade. Having always wanted to make the change myself, i believe most people have been pretty happy with the change.

My Tamburini has Forged Monoblocks on it with upgraded lines, pumps and controls (Full GP System). The previous owner says the bike stops in a hurry.

I wish I could tell you how they are personally but I have not ridden the Tamburini yet. I'm considering putting the OEM brakes back on it and moving the system over to the Senna. Not to tag along on your thread or anything but I'm interested in what people say about your planed upgrade.

Unless your last name is Rossi and are posting under a screen name, I wouldn't bother.

The stock brakes work fine on the street. If they don't work for you on the track, get some better pads. If you are still out riding your brakes, you are faster than most people here.

Now if you just want the bling of radial calipers, it is not a difficult swap.

Why not just go out on straight at a speed of your choice and squeeze the brake lever as hard as you dare. I would be willing to bet either you'll lock up the front wheel or the rear will come up. That being the case what's the gain to switching?

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Hundred per cent agree! The Nissin caliper are OK. Whenever there are problems with fading of efficency, in 99% of the cases is due to the pads. The original sinterized type are tramsmitting too much heat to the brake liquid which then starts to make bubles and the Brake pump lever becomes more and more "spongy".
With carbonmetallic or ceramic pads like Performance Friction (compound 95 or 07) or DID ZCOO all the problem will be solved.
The radial calipers have been designed to allow to change the diameter of the discs in function of the track or the weather, but after that they start to be "fashion"
Do you remember how Kevin swantz, wayne Rainey and all the others were braking? And they didn't have the radials caliper....................

This probably won't help either, but i just tried some iron rotors with XRAC pads on the track and they are 1000% better than the stock setup. Not only did they stop quicker, but there no fad at all, and that was during a day of braking from 150+ down to around 70 (i am guessing b/c no one in their right mind would be watching the speedo in the turn). If i had the money, i still wouldn't do the radials, i would buy more sets of the iron rotors! Just my $0.02, sorry it didn't help.

I change to Brembo radial Brake Master Cylinder on my 2005 F4 AGO and it is day to night . I didn't change the calipers.
I absolutely love it. It is worth avery cent.
