That's a good point about cost. For the record, I am $43 into the brake pads and $63 into the relocation bracket. The 320mm rotors can be pricey, but you have a lot of options for those.

There are always cheaper ways to do things, but I didn't want to stay with a 300mm rotor. Particularly with my SM wheels and sticky rubber. I had gotten a 320 rotor to work on my last Adventure and loved the braking so that is why I did it again.

Then this one is the new pads with the old SE pads laid on top for comparison.

This one shows the pads installed in my caliper after having the ends filed down about 3mm.

And here is the finished product. I haven't ridden it yet because there is no back half installed on the motorcycle, but I'm really happy with how it came out.

Anybody yet to supply a 320 mm "kit"? Well, 2 kits since I am finally into getting a 19'/17' wheelset for my SE to quit being forced to compromize on tyres, on gravel and on tarmac as well. Lucas, are you still putting together a set of such wheels? PM! I also need to find out the maximum possible rim- and tyrewidth front and rear without scraping the fork/swing.

No kit yet that I know of, but I have stopped looking. I haven't heard any chatter here though.

Did you set it up as brents347 did? With grinding of some millimeters on selected pads?

Ryan,

This is a basic one. Buy the bracket and a pair of the brake pads I listed above and ride it up to Truckee. We can do it in an hour. Oh, should probably buy a rotor as well!

Brent's, over the stock SE stuff...how much better is the 320mm rotor?

It's a little hard to equate.

On 17's with sticky rubber I can get the bike to do stoppies. Not easy at 450 lbs. or so! With the 21" front (on which I only run knobbies) I can easily lock the front on pavement and yet it is very easy to modulate in the dirt. Does it stop super quick on dirt? No, but again it is 450 lbs. with momentum on dirt!

I like having too much brake rather than too little. When I put a 19"/17" set-up and DS tires on my 950 SM people thought the brakes would way over-power the tire but it worked great for me.

I would say that the 320mm conversion is a 20-25% improvement over stock braking. But I have nothing to back that claim up.

Good enough for me....I'll put it on the "to do" list...especially with the 17's.

Any others share their view of braking improvement for an SE simply by going from 300 to 320mm disc? It is that significant (20-25%)?

I particularly interested in the improvement when using road rubber / 17 front….

has anyone managed to fit a 4 or 6 pot caliper?

anyone using a brace to address the pulling from the single setup with motards?

Did you buy the bracket (POW94L) from the US or did you find it somewhere in Europe?

1) Braking is definitely improved, however no percentage figure springs to mind. The quality of the 320 vs the stock disc is also a factor.
2) The improvement on a 17 wheel will be even more apparent, since the rotational speed of the disc will be greater for a given bike forward speed, hence the caliper will have greater leverage to the road while braking.
3) Braces apply only to non upside-down forks.
4) I think motomaster makes 4 pot calipers that fit.
