I've just aquired a set of 1200 Bandit 4 pot Nissin front brake calipers which I would like to fit to my 85 GSXR750F. Has anybody done this mod?.If anybody has I would be grateful if they could let me know who made the mounting brackets.

A suitable thick piece of aluminum or steel could be made into a bracket as well.

If they take the same adapters as AP calipers, I have a set of new billet alum. and hard anodized adapters for a 88-95 750 to AP's. If your early Model is the same as the 88-95 spacing and the Bandit is the same as AP's theses will work.
But does'nt the Bandit use the same Calipers as the 88-92's?

Yes, Bandit does have the same caliper spacing as the 88-modern gixxers.

Maybe the pre 88 stuff is the same as the new ones? New 600-750 calipers are getting pretty cheap.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I dunno nuffin' `bout dose bandits and other stuff... but the tokico 4-pots off the new-gen 600's are a direct bolt-on for the `89 1100 as long as you use the original `89 rotors... if you put the new-gen wheel&rotors in there as well, then the mount has to move up about 2.5mm to make up for the larger-diameter new-gen rotors.
