Rated 4 out of 5 by WaXed operate well and light
When bleeding these brakes make sure you de-gas the brake fluid 100% and remove all air in the bleed, otherwise when you get them hot the expansion can cause very bad brake drag. This is because the pad release is gap is quite small with the R1, also do the caliper alignment carefully and make sure the disc is dead centre in the caliper.
If setup properly they work really good. The R1 has very good modulation and are quite powerful. also one of the lightest brake around. Advertised weight is fairly accurate.
The R1 has a FCS (Feel Control System) option this simply adjusts the exact pad contact point in relation to the lever. Works well but you can run without it no problem if the bleed is done properly
Also a good idea to run a disc size smaller on the back. (ie 180mm disc on the front, 160mm disc on the back) this makes the lever force more even, relative to the maximum braking available before wheel lockup.
I believe the 2015 formula R1 model have increased pad release (this is a function of the master cylinder)
