Please keep us informed on how you like the setup Simon because I will be going with the same setup. Brembo slotted rotors on the front and rear with Hawk pads at all 4 corners with the ITR brake setup that will be going on shortly.

the only difference is the diameter of the piston in the master cylinder and it isnt much bigger but I guess it might help

another new rear strut pic

Painted the gsr radiator

2.5 ich collector baby!

Test pipe

Seventh Honor break shirt!





And this is how much it cost me.....




So what do you think of the new set up? BTW, one of my front bolt holes in the caliper bracket stripped out, so now I have to get a new braket before I can drive it! I think it's cast steel, and it stripped out. The bolt was perfect too, so i will prob just do the calliper and the bracket at once, and do the other calliper later.

Looks so very nice Simon. Loving the brand new Brembo rotors and oh so pretty SS brake lines. Good luck on getting it all back together and back on the road so you can give us a idea of how much better it feels.
