Default 4 Pad Brembo Calipers & Full Floating Iron Rotors

So I have become wise to the fact that my life literally depends on my front brakes on my Aprilia. The rear is worthless and I haven't used the rear brake in months. I upgraded to some full floating iron rotors and I have come ro realize just how important that upgrade was. I simply use one finger on the front brake lever at any time and that is all the force that is needed to do any braking I need.

I'll be coming back soon to touch on subjects such as the caliper cleaning and my pad selection as I've been warned not to use metallic pads with iron rotors. Time for some homework.
