    Replaced my stock single disc, single piston OEM front brake caliper with a 4-piston Hawg Halter. Weather keeps me off road - anxious to try it out. Was an easy replacement once I figured out how to get the old caliper off (fooled me for awhile, didn't know it was two pieces). Should have a lot more braking power for my old 96 Softie.
    Will do an update once the roads clear and dry.

    Mine doesn't look like that pic...but I am pleased to report that the new HHI 4-piston brake has much more braking power....I'd estimate as much as 50% more. Stops much better now.
