and how does it work?

My test ride home was about 4 miles in the pouring rain, needless to say I dont have idea if this is a huge improvement yet. My initial thoughts are that the lever position is a bit further out then with the BMW caliper when brought completely "home" and the feel is strong an progressive. The newness of the pads and the wet weather didn't allow me to get an idea if this will make a great improvement, but the change does make a noticable difference.

I suspect that it is making a difference because I noticed a significantly greater amount of front end drive when braking....... until just now I was writing it off to changing my fork oil from 15w to 10w before doing the caliper change, but now I'm reconsidering that judgement and thinking it's from the caliper conversion.

Hope to ride in Friday and give it some more testing....
