Often, we bikers get so wrapped up in adding air intakes, cams, big bore kits or any other number of chrome covers, that we tend to overlook possibly the most important set of components on our bike — the brakes.  Since brakes are often the last line of defense against motorists, wild animals, or just an over active throttle hand, its only natural that you should want to arm yourself with a state-of –the-art brake set up (something that performs at or above your expectations and has the looks to match). With that in mind, were taking some time today to about Performance Machine’s Brakes and Goodridge lines.

When it comes to motorcycle brakes, it doesn’t get any better than Performance Machine Calipers. An industry leaders in manufacturing standards and methods, Performance Machine offers everything from 2- and 4-piston rear calipers, to 6-piston differential bore front calipers with monster stopping power. CNC’d (which is a fancy way of saying “computer numerical controlled)) from solid chunks of billet aluminum, these best-selling calipers are available in polished, chrome and anodized black/contrast cut finishes. Bolting on a set of will not only stop your bike on a dime but it’ll look good doing so.

If you’re beefing up your brake system, you may also want to replace your stock brake lines with a set of Goodridge Brake Lines. Pressure-tested to 14,000 psi and guaranteed forever by the manufacturer, these are — in my opinion at least — quite possibly the highest quality and most attractive motorcycle break lines available.

If you’ve never owned a set of stainless brake lines then you don’t know what you’re missing. With the installation of these race track inspired lines, you’ll experience an unmatched feeling of control and responsiveness while taking the “fade” out of your brake system under hard braking. Available in clear-coated stainless steel and black anodized, Goodridge Brake Lines make the perfect compliment Performance Machine Calipers. This dynamic duo will have you stopping on a dime without so much as a skid mark.

Darrell, Goodrige does have an ABS kit for your bike and the Performance Machine calipers will work with your stock rotors. Where it gets a little dicey is in bleeding the lines on an ABS bike. To my knowledge you will have to have the brakes bled by a dealer because they have the specialized equipment that is necessary to verify that all the air is removed from the ABS system and that it is reset.

How will the Goodridge brake lines and Performance Machine Calipers interface with the Harley ABS on an 2010 FLHTCU? Will improved rotors be required, or will stock ones work with the Performance calipers?
