thanks lads. ill have a look percy. yeah i think it will be overkill getting uprated shit as the servo, braided lines and refurbed calipers should do the trick nicely!

I overhauled the whole of my Si's braking system, new shoes and cylinders on the back, new calipers on the front, discs, pads, lines, fluid, followed by a damn good bleed, and I have to say the thing stopped better than the Pulsar does (not difficult with it's shit brakes). The weight and speeds Si's do, if you have a decent standard brake setup, there's no need going into the whole uprated thing unless you are tracking it.
