The front brake is proven to be the most effective of the two brakes, giving up to 70-80% of the motorcycles stopping power in emergency stops, contingent on road surface and conditions.
Avoid using the front brake when in slow speed manoeuvres, especially when handlebars are turned. This can result in the front tipping quickly towards ground and dropping motorbike.
For slow speed manoeuvres the use of the rear brake will provide ample braking and will assist with stabilizing the bike at slow speed.
