The 2012 triglides have the worst rear brake stopping issues . Performance Machine has a stage II , 11” rotor and 4 piston combo replacement . Has anyone used this system ? As anything other than throwing out a anker out has got to be better.

With the non-ABS tri glides the rear brake is just there to scrub off speed and amuse you not for an emergency..

With my X 2011 Triglide if I had to make a quick stop I would pull up the bars as hard as I could and with authority yell whoa….. that seem to work?

Only reason you pulled up to the bars , is because your shorts filled up with shit ….…:AGGHH:
 
On my 14 I installed EBC double sintered pads, it was a game changer specially towing a trailer. The 21 in stock form works way way better… I still will upgrade the pads when I need pads.
 
I had to lock up the brakes on my 2018 when a car pulled "right out" in front of me. So close I could see the look of shock on her face. I think I was doing about 45 and the rears locked up so good it smoked the tires.

I guess it would be a good idea to empty my trunk and top case and do a few emergency stops just to see. If something breaks that would be a good time to find out.
