If I decide to drop the money to install SBK brakes on my bike, I'll find a qualified shop experienced with a mill to machine the extra material away. Maybe they're trying to show "How to install SBK brakes onto your SportClassic with tools you currently have in your garage".
Like I said previously, I don't want to offend anyone if that's your Sport1000, but imo that really looks bad aesthetically, not to mention what it may do to the integrity of the caliper.
Yep, if I were taking it on a track I think I would want more brakes . . . but I'm not. I'm too old and too slow for that.ducremus said:Having spent most of last summer on a race bike at NHIS (Loudon), I definitely feel the brakes are not up to snuff.
Fun bike, best handling bike out of the box that I've ever owned, and a real head-turner! Great choice, IMHO!
SUPERB IDEA, let me get my hand grinder....BRBReducs said:I've got to agree that the brakes are more up to the task at hand than I am, but if you really, REALLY want the bigger calipers, why couldn't you just grind down the spokes instead?
