But brakes...CRF brakes are offroad brakes. And all limitations of them are + point offroad and big problem on road. Stock CRF brake disk is tiny, you will need 300-320 disk. That means relocating caliper. That means making adaptor... So why would you need CRF brake if you can not bolt it directly to forks?
That's my reasons :)
My bad...i meant for offroad purpose.
When talking onroad i think its hard to beat the AT forks/brake setup (later models-if these will fit exactly?) I mean, there's no bike coming closer to the BIG then the AT...when talking dual sport...
