I have a 2011 street glide and im putting a 26 on it and i have ABS and i really want to run a single side brake. does anyone know the best way to do this i have read you can cut the right brake line on the block under the triple tree and tig weld it shut. or could you just run a new line from the ABS mod to the one caliper or will that mess up the ABS. any help would be great

Just run a single line to your abs box. Don't cut stuff it looks cheap.

I'm curious too because I'm considering doing it.
For those who have switched over to a single sided brake setup, stock size or other, has the braking gotten better, worse, no different?
What size wheel & caliper did you go with?
If you could do it over, what would you change, if anything?

I used to have a single sided with 11.8" rotor. Did it work under most conditions??? - Yes

Did I feel it was insufficient???- Yes

Mind you I tried both sizes of Master Cylinders before ditching the single sided setup and switching to Brembos.

You went back to duals?

If I upgrade to a 13" rotor & a 6 piston caliper, I'm thinking that won't fit my stock lower legs, right?

I'm still working so I may be a little tired & stupid (mostly stupid lol)...if the caliper mounts are fixed & work with an 11.8" rotor, how would a bigger, 13", rotor be able to fit? I can't seem to figure it out. lol

The 6 piston caliper is made differently. The caliper mounts are in the same position no matter who's legs you use.

Ok, now that make a little more sense. I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but I could tell you that you can't squeeze 13" into a spot made for 11.8" (at least not without her screaming!)
