Think LEVER ARMS. The stopping torque is relative to the length of the lever arm.

For argument, for an 11.5 inch disc (est. 2" swept radial distance, so the swept regions goes from 9.5" to 11.5")...

And a truly beautiful (and inexpensive!) job at that.

Congrats! The FXLR is one of the lightest and most nimble of the Softail line. Almost feels like a Sportster, but can be ridden on the highway too!
