Brakes!

The G310R features a fairly basic braking system.

It's got a 300 mm single-disc brake a four-piston fixed caliper in front and a two-piston floating caliper together with a 240 mm disc in back.

It's got 2 channel ABS, but not sure if they're linked or not...

It's got the same front disc brake as the Duke 390 but just 10 mm less in the rear. Not sure how much of a braking difference that 10mm will make on the g310r.

Not sure if it's the 'same'. Same size yes, but the same components?

It's supposed to be a high-performance braking system. What makes it high performance if it's just the basic braking system?

If they have the same supplier then there might be some things in common but I can't imagine the entire braking system being same.

I meant size wise. The KTM 390 uses radially-bolted, four-piston calliper and 300 mm disc diameter brakes.

Now that people are taking delivery of their G310R, how do you find the factory brakes? Are you looking into aftermarket ones?

Another thing for braking feel is ensuring people are bedding them properly. Usually the procedure is outlined in the owners manual as well

I've heard that just changing the brake pads can make a load of difference even if they're on the cheaper end of the aftermarket offerings. EBC ias one brand that keeps popping up for me.

Know a few people that use EBC and really like them. Great bite after you heat em' up good enough.
