What happens with these in the rain? Sudden loss of stopping power?

If I am ever in the rain I will let you know.

Just had to post some more pictures. Sad thing is I will not be able to test these until this weekend:bawling:

What was the damage on the brake upgrade?

Since they are not in production. You have to find someone whom is willing to let them go. I will say it cost $400 to change out the carriers and then another $160 for the new pads.

Thank you Dave. Not sure if that is true.

They do look very pretty, but I thought that Carbon disc's didn't work on the road, as you can't keep enough heat in them (you're not braking hard every 15-20secs, unlike on a track)? I'd be worried they would be very unpredictable in street riding?

I thought that the heat thing was the reason MotoGP/WSBK bikes used steel discs in the rain, rather than a loss of friction when wet?

Not full carbon like MotoGP. These are the Braketech CMC rotors which do not have to have all the heat in them.

So Sicom are the only new Carbon ones that are available ?

The T-drive carriers aren't as esthetic as the Braketech carriers thou.

As a sidenote Sicom or rather MS Production allso refurbishes CMC discs regardless of brand.
(I wonder if they actually were the OEM manufacturer of the carbon part of Braketech discs in the first place.)

So once Your's wear below limit You can send them over to be plated and resurfaced.
