    I am going to put a custom 21" front wheel on my 06 Streetglide this winter. I have seen where some people replace the stock front dual disc brakes with a single 6 piston (Jaybrake brand usually). Has any one done this & if so what kind of stoping power have you lost or gained? if any! Thanks

    It's hard to beat the stopping power of the dual 4 pot stock units on the baggers.

    Instead of going to a single 6 piston why not look at some of the custom rotors that are out there? I seen a lot of bikes the other day where the rotors actually complimented the wheels.And as long as you are tearing it all apart go with the Brembo brakes when you put it back together.
