    Brake Cooling Ducts

    Hi, anyone has put a pair of brake cooling ducts in his motorbike? Like this or similar.

    Opinions to reduce fatigue/fading in brakes during track days.

    No but I do not think 95% of the riders need them.

    Which model mate ? Gen3 ?

    Alpha sells front fender that reduces temp on calipers by 30% and in addition you're better off getting gp4rx calipers.

    I usually ride in Ricardo Tormo with 30C or more heat, and front brake always will go down after 4 laps, with brembo pr 19x18 master cilinder.

    This conducts are for 2010-2018.

    Exactly this. Unless you're on the Moto GP grid, then these and wings are purely garage princess bling.

    It's braking, but lever travels all the way in, I don't like it.

    Already fully out mate

    It's nothing to do with lever.

    Calipers get hot and are not being cooled properly and material they are built from is not dissipating heat good enough. Liquid gets hot - > lever travel. Even RBF700 doesn't help.

    Air ducts / aerodynamic front fender / better calipers (gp4rx) is the only way to fix this.

    And it has nothing to do with 95% of people or racing. Even at 2:10 pace at Mugello you will feel it
