Captive Rear Caliper and non front removal

I have been changing tires a lot lately in the middle of race season and I am pretty fed up with how ridiculous it is to put the wheels back on. I will be finding some captive spacers soon. I would really like to figure out how to make the rear brake caliper captive as well so I don't have to mess with it. And while I am at it, is there anything that can be done to the front so you don't have to remove the calipers to take the wheel off?


Please show me what you have done, I need to fix this.

Cool

Depending on how much you want to spend you could look into brake lines with quick disconnects, this would allow you to leave the calipers attached.

Something along the lines of these, I'm sure if you e-mailed them they might be make some for the Daytona

If you mean, "kick you in the ****ing balls, and take your wallet whilst you are bent over writhing in pain." Then yes, yes they will do that.

Obviously. I mean if taking your brakes off is that damn important you have some mental issues. I just set a box next to my bike and set them on that and it works perfectly fine and the box didnt cost me a thing haha though I do wish my front stand had some kind of holder.

I installed hooks on either side of my Pitbull stand. Just drop them to the side, and clip them in. No $500 fix needed here.

Yeah I have seen that, and got that idea from some video I was watching, but just have never take action to it. I just keep using the same box that just happens to be the perfect size haha

Can't you just remove the front fender and pivot the forks out? There was a member here that custom made "endurance" forks that just added a pivot to the front fender so the forks could pivot while keeping the front fender on.

Honestly I find the front to be easy as shit, its the rear caliper that can give me headache every now and then, but I now have a little seat I stole from my mom's house and it makes working on the bike so much more enjoyable since I am not constantly bent over. Plus my g string does not show as much now.

Doesn't it suck when you one testicle falls out though? It must be awful sitting off balance all day.
