Gauging interest for Daytona/Striple rear brake caliper underslung bracket from Japan
Hi 675 lovers,
It's been quite a while I have been watching an interesting japanese company called Kohken. They have partnership with Brembo in Japan and notably are specialized in anodisation. They are particularly interesting for us because they propose to the Triumph 675 owners a very tasty rear brake caliper underslung bracket. It's beautifully engineered and made on CNC. Problem: they have stopped producing it since few months already. I have a contact there who is proposing a group price (otherwise producing only one part is too costly) but for at least 10 pieces. So since I really want this bracket, I need to find 10 of you guys who would be willing to purchase one as well. I will be taking care of the purchase to Kohken and distributing the parts to you wherever you are located in the world. Based on the price my contact has given, we are looking roughly into a USD280-300 max. bill including shipping. I know it is a bunch of money but this is a truly unique piece of kit. Furthermore, we would benefit of their skills in anodisation with a wide range of colors (in regular and hard alumite). Please see attached how it looks like and the range of available colors and let me know your thoughts.
nice, but not to take away from this... we had a forum member also make some and i am still using mine. and will update to a billet caliper this winter.
You might find someone wanting to spend $900 in total for a caliper kit that is mostly for looks hard to find, unless it is usable with the standard OEM style brembo as found on Ducati, even then its a good $500 mod depending on your price.
Look forward to seeing how it goes.
I understand for some of you it makes the mod. expensive at the end but it's not only for the looks. It saves some unsprung weight too!
