I put one on the rear of my 950A. It is slightly thicker than OEM, making new pads a tight fit. It also squeals like crazy with sintered pads. I put Galfer Black pads in, and it's much quieter. With...

Actually, on the 950, the orange wire to the coils should have battery voltage with the key on. The ECU operates the coils from the ground side of the circuit.

I had a bad case of headshake at that speed from the Pirelli AT90 scorp the bike came with. After replacing that front tire, I've never had the problem with any subsequent front tires, either.

The reason they have less travel, is that the pistons have 2 O-rings for not only better sealing, but the extra length of the piston keeps the piston straighter in the cylinder bore. The extra piston...

The newest replacement oem oil jet has a raised, convex cone in it's center, which makes it much less likely to plug.
