Brake conversion

Hi all,
I am interested in improving the brakes on my '74 Commando. I have been eyeing the kit sold by Triton Motorcycles and was wondering if anyone on this forum with experience of its use would mind sharing his/her opinion of the brakes. I have been using the sleeved down master cylinder with braided lines, Ferodo pads and a drilled disc for many years with reasonable success, but would like something better. I'm familiar with CNW's kit and impressed, but dismayed by the price.
TIA,
Paul.

which one of his kits are you looking at? his $750.00 kit looks like a huge improvement over stock. any time you can increase the rotor diameter or a better caliper it is a win.

I run the kit from Madass on my 1974 Commando and would highly recommend it.

Exactly my thoughts... Pretty sure he's no longer making parts tho. A search for him online did not reveal a web address, but some stuff came up on Access Norton...


ACCESS NORTON/MADASS

Still going, but difficult to track down.
