Front Brakes on 2010 Brutale 1090RR

Hi,

I recently purchased a 2010 Brutale 1090rr, the bike has 13k miles and it runs great. The only issue is that the front brake feel weaker than I expected. My previous bike was a 2006 honda cbr 600f4i, and the brutale brakes don't feel better than the honda's brakes. When I come to stop sign and I'm going about 30mph and I only use the front brakes to stop I have to push the lever hard to come to a full stop. Is this normal? The previous owner did not ride it much, he did replaced the brake fluid about 6months ago. Could the pads be bad? What do you think? How strong are the brutale's brakes supposed to be?
Thanks!

Bleed the brakes and you should be able to do stoppies easily.

My 910R front brakes became quite wooden in feel after quite a few miles. Still material left, just no feel. I flush and bleed my brake fluid at least every 2 years.
Installed some new EBC HH pads and ...voila!! that good hard bite returned.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Master cylinder is crap. Was always bleeding mine. New pads helped for a while then it was back to wooden feel and more bleeding. Changed to a Brembo 19RCS and the brakes were finally as good as they should be. I rode a mate's 2014 1090 and nearly got into some serious trouble with braking. Expensive fix but well worth it, best aftermarket thing I've put on.

Cheers

Thanks for all the good information. I think I will get new break pads, and see how it goes. The breaks were bleed 600 miles ago at the MV dealer

Were the brakes bled to replace the brake fluid or for another reason? Were new Sintered pads or Organic pads used ?

Eddy,

No I didn't although I almost bought mmmmm's Frentubo lines but didn't want separate lines just for the neatness of the originals. In hindsight it might have made them even better, especially in the bleeding department. Did a ride day at Qld. Raceway in March and while I may have been one of the slowest in my class I outbraked everybody. They are absolutely brill with the Brembo 19RCS wet or dry.

Cheers

The brakes were bled to replace the fluid. No idea what pads are in there or how old they are, I'll have to check
