Can you lock up the rear axle stomping on those brakes? There's no room for improvement on the rear braking if you can do that. If not, you must first be absolutely sure you've got all the air bled out, get a friend to help you with pushing and/or holding the brake, opening/closing the bleeder on the caliper, etc., then you're ready to make improvements if they won't lock up still. First be sure the disc is thick enough to match the caliper, a disc that's too thin won't get enough action from the caliper piston. If you have room to put on a larger diameter disc of the proper thickness without it banging stuff on the ground, the bigger it is the better it'll stop you for the same amount of pedal effort. Like 18.8" of surface on a 6" disc, but 25.1" of surface on a 8" disc.I have hydraulic disk brakes with one rear rotor/caliper setup.
Yeah, what he said. Verify first that locking up the rear is not good enough to make you happy before you consider front brakes.Not very easy to add front brakes, not very many options for wheel hub setups for front brakes.
