I made a handful of these off the TPO design. 7075 and hard ano black. I've just been lazy about ordering c-clips for them because I couldn't find the right shims. I made them specifically for the Daytona so they are designed for a 4.5mm rotor. If I could find the super slim shims that came with the TPO buttons I'd have a few extra sets. I think I made 60 or so buttons. I figured that shim would be easy to source. I was wrong. I may have to start looking again.

Custom metalwork. PM me with your ideas.

For a 4.00mm rotor and a 4.5mm button they come with a .3mm shim. Hereís what you need.

Alright, screw it. I'm going to do this sometime in July/August before the next trackdays. For $100ish, why not? I've got a spare set of rotors if it doesn't work out as planned anyway. I'll take a look at my FZ-09 rotors as well when I take the wheels off next. Might do that one as well.

Nothing to loose. Also you know I’d do the labor for you for a 6pack anytime.

@MGFChapin if you want it done I already owe you so just let me know.

? You don't owe me anything. I was budgeting for some T-drives this winter, but this is pretty damn tempting.

I know for a fact they are. T-drives are a mm thicker and weigh half a pound more each. Considering the pads and M/C I currently have, not sure I really need more braking power; I'd probably rather have less weight and some floaters. I'll order the parts next week and figure out a convenient time for you.

Sounds like a plan. We need control not more braking power with the setups we have. The floating rotors should improve feel.

Thanks for the write up. Now I'm just waiting for all the brake lines to do the ABS delete while everything is apart!!
