    As my personal experience: Front Brake for city driving(low speed driving) and Rear Break is for open road/hi way(high speed driving)...Never do sudden breaking either back/front or both braking because in my own insight, braking is also comes with an evasive reaction. Its too dangerous to do this sudden break especially the using the front brake...

    Rear brake for slowing down and front brake for final stop.

    i use 99% front brake on Highway or highspeed stop. I only use rear brake for slow traffic. only use rear break when the motorcycle is running on a straight line.

    Yes. me too. I just had the rear brake foot lever installed since it was stolen and no rear break for 3months. I installed it because it is useful when going down from Baguio for our roadtrip

    nc info sir.. im agree with sir francisco.. when running high speed then it comes to sudden stop. its very useful to use front break. because all the gravity force coming from the back, driver and the motorcycle carry's the front brake when you brake. not like using the rear brake.. it takes many meter to stop..

    and when dealing front brake. make sure your tire is original.;) i replaced my stock IRC tire 70-90 to MICHELLIN 70-90 LP.. i experienced that the irc is slippery specially cement highway. not like michellin. kapit na kapit. :D

    IRC Sucks hehehehe...
    FDR i think cheap price but performance good..

    hehehe mostly i used Engine break first and back up by Rear Break..
    for me rear break is just for slowing down but the most important to upgrade is front break..

    Just like on the Big bikes
    dual disc on front means most important is front break and rear break is just for slowing down.. but there's some dealing why there's dual disc on big bike's because that bike is a monster hehehe very heavy.. :D

    try on a sharp curve using rear brake.. you will experience slide.. not like front break.. you will experience super lean.. toe touch..:)

    rear break more often, its effective for me to press on the source of push. Its best to manage speed prior to entering a sharp curve so as to lessen the need to use it while leaning. ride safe.

    you are correct takomi on a daily commute. Use front and rear when doing full stop on a straight line. But don't ever ever use brake on curve unless super emergency. I use front brake for emergency on a curve, id rather do lowside than highside on locked rear brake. I experienced a near highside when i was using my crypton's rear brake on a curve. good thing the power and speed of my motorcycle isn't that powerful. I think Sniper will. :D
