Fantic XF1

Hello! Been riding a 2017 Fantic XF1 for a few months now. Absolutely love it! On longer descents I’m noticing brake fade mainly from the rear. The front rotor is 200mm but the rear is 180mm. The bike came with a sram set up. I think it’s pretty entry level. I’m new to the sport so I don’t have a lot of knowledge on the parts. I would like to upgrade the rear rotor to 200mm if possible. Would all that take is a new rotor and some spacers?

Thanks in advance for the help and I look forward to getting to know y’all on the forum.

Yes a 200mm rotor would definitely help. You could add spacers or change out the adapter.
