Ducati 1199S ABS Brake Upgrade

Hi Guys,
I've been using Panigale 1199S ABS for the past 6 months, I feel that the brake especially the front brake is not as strong as I would expected. I want to upgrade them, but would like to seek advise from your guys on what do you think is the most cost effective way to upgrade the braking performance.

Thanks.

The best thing you can do is bypass the ABS so block off all 4 ports on the pump and go direct line from the master down to the calipers.

Thanks for the input!
Will this method create an error message in the dash? do you think the ABS is lowering the brake performance?

I don't know it there is a cheaper way but looks to solve the problem ...... I might do also as I just hate ABS... I'll make my own lines but some are available and this is an alternate way but you must leave the pump in .......

It will not throw any codes on your dash and yes the ABS will always degrade your brake performance. The shorter the brake lines between the master/calipers the better.

how about upgrading the calipers any recommendation? and how about the rotors size, do we have option to get bigger one? or any specific rotors my effectively improve the braking?

The Brembo GP4-RX calipers and T-Drive or HPK rotors are a common upgrade. Keep in mind you'll also need to change the master cylinder due to the different piston size in the calipers vs the OEM M50's.

Try bypassing the the ABS first. It's definitely the best bang for your buck as far as the brakes go. Followed by the master cylinder.

The M50 calipers actually are pretty damn good along with the standard 330 rotors its a good setup. If you want to go another step up change out the master to a Brembo RCS 17 and bypass the ABS you will have a damn good setup.
