I hope they are worth the money as i am tired of all the crappy OEM style calipers I have tried.
I'm waiting on pads and brackets to mount them to my forks. I don't have time to machine the brackets so I ordered some. Hopefully be here next week.

They will be going on these forks.

The bolts that hold the caliper halves together are an odd length. Pro bolt doesn't have any so I need to search for some. I already have TI mounting bolts but they may not fit the new brackets. Have to wait till they get here.
There are the brackets, straight from Japan.


I rode my friends panigale and that dam thing spoiled me brake wise. I know I won't be able to match them but this set up should be much better than the nissins are.

Yeah and judging by the new goodies I'd say an update of your bike is in order

No big changes other than the brakes. I have been working on small stuff. I added a WEGO 4. Been tinkering more with my ZRX1200 than the ZX12.

Once I get the brakes mounted and another project finished I will post pics.

I machined another TI goody a while back to mount my brake reservoir. I didn't like the tab I welded on to the bar.

Thanks. It could be used for anything but the taped hole is only 5mm so I doubt it would support much weight. If the hex area were made larger ( I made it 10mm ) you could go 6mm,1/4 20 or possibly up to 8mm depending on hex size.

That was my first time machining a TI part from bar stock. Not as easy to work with using my limited tooling at work.

Well look what showed up today. They would have been here yesterday but the post office was closed.
Hope there aren't any important warnings in the instructions as they are all in japanese and I can't read a word of it.

Well, off to the garage to bolt on some new brakes.

Finished mounting and bleeding the brakes. Everything bolted on perfectly I finished too late to take it for a ride but maybe tomorrow I will have some time before work to try them.
