Paging umicheng....

When I was racing my D675, I really wanted to do this but it wasn't allowed for CVMA's Supersport Middleweight Racing. I would only be allowed to Race in Formula Middleweight and Middleweight Shootout.

However, I do plan on possibly getting another D675 soon as track only (and not race it).

R6 calipers have zero drag. I did the swap and love it. Stopping power is the same.

Is it a straight bolt on or is there more too it? I know my 07' calibers drag like crazy. Was planning on rebuilding them before next race season but maybe I should just do a R6 swap?

I got to test ride a new R6 on the track, first time riding one.

Personally, I like the brakes on my 675 much better. Just more confidence and overall stopping power. Maybe with race pads, the R6 would feel better.

Then again, I have iron rotors, Brembo calipers and ceramic race pads :-)

You will need a spacer for the 06-08 forks, haven't done the swap yet but just sliding one over the rotor, it will need a spacer machined, and probably different brake lines. I have a set for a winter project for my STR, might even upgrade the master cylinder as well. The MC looks like the same one that Suzuki uses on GSXR's, and they are known to crap out under hard use like racing or track days, if streeting your bike get Brembo RCS19 adjustable it came with a switch for the brake light, TJ @ Riders Discount had the best price on the MC, Spiegler can make the lines if needed. Brembo MC is money well spent if you like 1-2 finger braking with a light touch.

This is a track only bike. I will be going brembo master but havnt researched it enough to ask any valid questions. The decision now is to pay for a rebuild kit or buy R6 calipers at 2/3 the price and pay to machine spacers.

Right now I'm heavily leaning towards a caliper rebuild kit instead of R6 calipers unless a trustworthy feller comes in here and tell me it was a massive improvement in stopping power...:)
