I read that as similar to a dry clutch system. One caliper presses two outer frictions towards a stationary center friction that sandwiches two floating rotors.

I remember seeing that, too. Looked heavy as fuck, complicated and even a bit fragile.

Modern bikes have brakes that will stand the bike on it's nose on command. Anything more complicated than that is a waste IMO. Unless you just dig the look or something

Seriously though, if youíre not road racing or frequently slowing down quickly from a top speed run, I truly believe a single modern tech rotor and a 4-piston caliper with a good set of pads will be sufficient.

I think you would be doing yourself a disservice by using only one rotor, especially considering you're set up for nitrous.
It also had a disc that was meant to be used as a single. The material was thick enough to resist warping pretty well.

Btw: If you fit a half inch master cylinder off a cbr600f2/f3 that brake becomes pretty respectable.

It was a highly cost reduced system on a cost reduced bike. There were no benefits in the long run for the single disc system on the XJ and they changed the design to a dual disc for the next iteration.

Towards the original question, I doubt the rotors that he is thinking of using as a single are as you put it "meant to be used as a single." Even with a perfectly balanced hydraulic system.

Grand scheme of things though, there are plenty of cruisers out there that don't use the front brakes at all and are still alive and riding today...

Heres an idea. If the thing that worries us the most is wrapping of discs l due to heat. Why not use 4pot design caliper. Make a spacer for it so you could fit thicker rotor up there. Water jetting places is getting cheaper. With some hardening it could work.

I think
