Great build. I really like the way the saddle had been done. Looks good. I am taking mine in track now as well ,but will be riding in the Historic Group so decided to just keep with the stock 18" wheels. We don't actually race as it is considered a parade. ;) Great for insurance purposes. Lovely work on your bike!

Another step closer to the 17" conversion. Awesome caliper brackets installed with later model calipers. Waiting on braided brake lines now.

Those rotors look mint. Did you score new ones or are they vapor blasted etc? Looks like your bike will be done well in advance on mine. Enjoy the updates!

Coming along. I have already heard six pots are shit and those are rather large adapter plates if you felt the need to mention either. 😉 Exhaust ceramic coated and braided lines.

yeah, i've also read that 6 piston tokico calipers are no good, but i have used them for years on my trackbikes with good results.

i'm always skeptical when reading other riders' opinion, when it contradicts my own experience. it's best if you judge the performance of the calipers yourself.

Took it out for the first time after new brakes lines and calipers installed. Found out my rotors are warped with bad brake lever pulsating. EBC rotors should arrive tomorrow then can really test it.
