Thread: ZTL2 worth it over ZTL1 ?

  1. #81
    Here we go. ZTL2 + EBR Rotor are mounted on my bike ! It took only 9 mounths .

    By the way, I had also the exhaust ceramic coated.
    My "new" bike looks great !

    Before :








    After :









    So. Was it worth it ? Hell no, it does not brake that much better. But the feeling is different. I have to pull the lever much more than with the ZTL1. But it is also much more smouther and less "on/off". I feel like I can dose the brake much more easily than before.
    Do I wish I did not do it and kept my money ? Again : hell no. I feel like I have a brand new bike !

    Your bike looks great,

    1. What MC did you use ? You should be able to adj the lever pull.
    2. You might have air in the lines.
    3. You should have major better brakes. I did when I did the conversion.
    4. How many miles since you did this, are the pads bedded in ?

    I dont think so as the Buell dealer did it. And, so far, every time there was, even a very little problem, he dealed with it before giving my bike back. By the way, it brake hard, no problem about that. It is just that I have to pull the lever much more than with ZTL1

    I think I do. Did not have time to use the bike a lot so far. And I wont be able to use it before at least 10 days.

    I think the dealer did it. At least he definitly tried it as the brake rotor had some marks on it proving that it was used, at least, a little.
    So, how many mile ? 40 miles maybe ? Not much more for sure !

    When you say you have to pull the lever much more, do you mean lever has to travel longer distance before engaging or do you have to pull it harder?

    Bike looks great BTW

    Thanks !

    definitly not harder ! I could pull it with one finger only
    The lever has to travel longer distance before hard braking. But, it is "soft braking" right after I begin to pull the lever.

    (I hope my english is understandable on that sentance :-D)

    Dont know... The brake pads that came with the ZTL2 caliper part number H1110.1AMZT (from St Paul HD).
    I guess those are the guenuine Buell brake pads ?
    edit : looks like those pads are nissin pads, Buell part : H0300.1AMB
