What's the current pricing for UFOs if we get a 5th, and how much
will it go down with each person?
The bracket cost was most of the reason going from UFO's to BIRA was
completely cost prohibitive(it'd take 6 sets of pads+rotors before
you -broke even-), so if we can get the cost down, it's a whole other
ballgame, because by all accounts, they're better in all other
regards(well, save the loss of 15" rims...) Easier servicing, better
pad choices, better modulation...yes?
I'd be in if the price dropped...I think my (brand new) UFOs are just
about permanently warped after the MC locked up on me half-way from
home and overheated them a year or two ago. They get worse as they
heat up, too; wobbles gets VERY bad, and effective stopping power
goes way down...which is not my usual experience(usually they
straighten out if you get 'em hot, and they should have plenty of
staying power). Siiigh.
