Scott,

Too bad he isn't closer, I could use some parts.

I would buy that $100 in a heartbeat. For the parts alone it would be worth it. Save me the headache of rebuilding the VTR engine. Then I would have a second frame to play around with and stuff a WR250X engine in :D

Folks,

I can't tell you how much it pains me, but I'm selling this machine.

I thought it was going to be just right for where and how I ride, but I have to face the fact that it is just too small for me.

Sorry you're divorcing but interest in a rare special-import like that should be keen in that prosperous area i guess. :roll: Probably the best region in USA for interest in that little toy. :P

the benz master wrote:Interesting you guys are talking about caliper upgrade ... that's also something i did with my VTR. An Aprilia RSV 2000 brembo 4 pot caliper. these go for dirt cheap too. got about twice the braking power compared to the stock caliper... it's amasing. cant imagine what it would be with a new brembo radial caliper...

the bracket is a bit ugly, i machined it in a hurry the night before going to a track day so i didnt take the time to round off the corners and stuff.


I suppose this is a Brembo P4 caliper, do you know if the piston size is 34/30? 65mm spacing for mounting holes? Do you still have the specs for the adapter?

Cheers

Spot, you're supposed to use less brakes to go faster!
