Suzuki across brakes

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Tomcatalex, Feb 25, 2008.

  1. why has the model across i was looking at 1990 98 comp grey import have the brakes on the right side
    and there was an across in a dealer with the brakes on the left side

    is there a reason why this is like this? is one side more dangerous than the other, is it for the os market?? let me know any ideas why???


  2. Along with a number of 250's the brake changed from 1 side to the other part-way through the model run. It makes no difference to performance but some people think it looks better to see the wheel styling rather than the brake, when it is parked on the sidestand.
