Crap ones! LOL Same as 3i brakes I think. Not quite as good due to the linkage which is different to xr3i.

s1 brakes are the same size. Never been in a s1 with standard brakes but my 16i had standard and they where really s**t

Try www.raldes.co.uk they do brake kits, they may do the brakets to fit cossie discs if not try e.bay there's allways stuff on there

standard brake are proper poop S2 discs and calipers go straight on and you can also fit the rear S2 brakes as they are bigger that will improve things
