Looking good.... I used a Suzuki GSXR resourvor for the brake to get it out of the way of the gauges.
Cheers Lint :smile-new:
Yep, the Soozie one is a little more ..er..compact I notice MD. I will try and find something smaller that I can swing out of the way.
Good pics, this is next winters must do project. Am sick of trying to bleed my brakes properly plus no fan of linked braking. What did you use for the rear m/c? Is that a Nitron i spy on the rear end? How do you find it?Ive got a Wilbers 631 on mine. What a difference! Front fork swap on the horizon as well!
Hi and thanks for the response.
A Nitron indeed...I supply them! (...and at a discount!)
I had no problem bleeding the linked system with a vacuum bleeder but like you I'm not a fan and I know how and when to use the rear brake.
Not only that but 16 year old hoses NEED changing IMHO ;-)
I have worked with HEL to configure a four line set for de-linking and carrying out further work to achieve a solid bridge piece for the rear caliper.
Rear M/C is a 14mm Nissin unit from a cbr 600 but as long as it's 14mm many units fitted to Hondas work as the fixing points are the same. Push rod may need trimming.
We can thank Mello Dude for the M/C, caliper piston ratio calculations.
Nice pictures, like the way you work :thumbsup: close to porn, if you posted more of the pictures it would be a double :thumbsup: Cheers
Mark641, can I ask how you mounted the front mudguard? I see VTR lower legs, callipers off maybe a CBR600 or 929 (I have something similar mounted on my VTR), and the stock wheel. I know the VTR legs/guard use different mountings to the VFR.
Thanks RideVFR...will do! Bit obsessive maybe, like I removed the swingarm during de-link and greased all open bearings and replaced cush drive rubbers.
Hi Cadbury, I like Mello Dudes CNC made billet mounting but came up with a set of bobbins /spacers that screw onto M6 cap screws...see photos. The brakes are RC51/SP2 calipers & M/C with EBC HH pads.
I supply Nitron shocks and have now have the four line HEL kit against my name so can supply that as a kit.
