C400x front brake!


New member
Test rode a 400x recently and found the front brake very scary! Dealer said 'Must be all like that'!
Do any of you 400x owners find this?

Thanks Davidh.

Bought the bike today with full service at BMW dealers! Front brake still vague but I can live with that. Very enjoyable little bike!

Hi Byee,
Took the C400X for a test ride as my F80GS Adventure was being serviced. Got a real shock when I applied the front brake at the lights. Almost went down to the grip. But liked it that much I traded in the 800 got the 400 serviced and rode it home. Front brake is still a bit vague but back brake very good! Wondering if this is normal or do I still have a problem? Regards, Alex

Congrats on the new toy!!!

I bought my C400GT in Feb 2019. The brakes on the bike will stop on a dime with no issues with the front brakes locking up especially with the ABS.

I only have the basic 400X model but my problem is the front brake is practically non-existent! Still love the little bike, bit of a change from my R1250gs Rallye!!
