And then there's always the exception. Honestly it's really no different then changing from a 525 chain to a 520 and running an aluminum sprocket. It may be a bit more maintenance but it's definitely worth it.

Yeah that's an interesting point. We'd just call that buildup not salt. It's road grime baked on just like you get on the pipe. When we say salt here we are specifically referring to salt as in sodium. A brake caliper rebuild will fix that since it replaces the pistons.

Well, technically, my bike does street and track, so...


And stop rolling your eyes at me.

Just received my buttons from Germany, will try and give some feedback on them, although they are going on my 1199S & F3 800 (stock brembo rotors)..

They have sizes which I am sure will fit the triumph brembos also.

Completed the mod this weekend. About one hour, 15 min from start to finish including removing/replacing the front wheel.

Test will come in a few weeks at COTA. I'll report back on the impact on shuddering. Stay tuned.

He didn't have a chance to test them thoroughly. Didn't want to risk them not working properly during a race weekend.
