    Front is DONE.

    Now the rear. Have the F2 rim.

    I know one can use a Triumph rear disc to replace the VFR unit as it is same bolt pattern and same size as VFR750F unit.

    BUT

    Seem to recall that the Stock VFR caliper mount arm could be trimmed and rewelded to enable use of the stock VFR rear disc.


    OR

    Use a caliper mount assembly from an early CBR600---F1 model.

    Is that CORRECT??

    Open to ANY / ALL ADVICE to make the switch easier prior to moving forward.

    Thank you

    All of the above. The CBR F1 caliper bracket might need different spacers, haven't verified that yet. You will need to bore out to 20mm for the axle. I will do a mock up next week after a motorcycle camping trip this coming weekend.

    And bolting the arm to a drilled and tapped CBR929RR bracket is another option. Doing that on my next couple.
