    Magura or Beringer?

    Out of those two front calipers, which is the better one?

    Magura or Beringer?

    I have a 6 piston Beringer on my supermoto and love it. No experience with a Magura.

    i have one of each on my bikes and the beringer is by far the better, especially in the wet you get so much more feel braking into turns

    Cheers guys! Can I use the stock SXV master cylinder with the Beringer, or do I need to upgrade that to a bigger capacity unit?

    It is just a picture from internet. I have stock 320 rotor. Will try sticking with that.
    Or should I get a Beringer one. I'm not even sure if I will keap this caliper. I'm pretty happy with my Magura, but the price on this was sheet, so I took it.

    Magura or Beringer?

    For me Beringer all the way. And yes you can use the Beringer caliper with the stock m/c but not sure how good it will be.
    4 piston is ideally suited to a Bro-10 m/c and 6 piston caliper suited to a Bro-12 m/c.

    Elcamino. I've had plenty of success getting pads for my Beringer from Corsa Italiana in the UK but if you get stuck I've a new set here I'd sell if you couldn't get them from them or even our local supplier here in Australia @ http://www.sportsbike.com.au

    Thanks Markee, but I already ordered pars from French ebay.
    Will order a longer brake line, mine is 10cm short...

    Bro-10 has 14,5mm piston?
    What about Bro-12?

    I have a 190 Magura 16mm, wonder how will they get along...

    Magura or Beringer?

    I think Bro-12 is 17mm. And I had to get a longer brake line too.
