Mark,

Was going to machine up some top hats today at work but we don't have any material there :( The only alloy was 16mm tube with a 9mm ID :( . Any Chance you could get a set made for me please?

This is quite good, fitting Fireblade calipers to a ZZR (the principal is the same as a KR-1S

Just looking at the photo of the calipers above , I think I need to clean the front wheel :lol: . White wheels look ace with the green / black colour scheme but god they are a PITA to keep clean #-o .

Having tried more than a few of those myself, be aware that some of the nissins will foul on the discs, it appears that they may mount slightly differently and catch on the caliper body on the entrance and exit bit of the slot, if you know what I mean, whils it's only minimal it does catch and sounds somewhat like a turbo charged bacon slicer :lol:

I tried several different types and found this to be the same, no issues with the tokicos though.

I've tried both and Mark is right.
The Tokikos bolt straight on but the Nissins do foul. Mine were bad enough to stop the wheel turning. 10 minutes with the dremel sorted it though. :D

i've managed to get some minty bandit 1200 calipers(same as the gsxr ones),and now i've reached the problem of what mounting bolts to use on the kris,i can't use the standard bolts as their m10,the bandit mounting bolts are not long enough because the kr uses recessed cap heads,i have plenty of suitable stainless bolts,but isn't there a risk of the stainless bolts shearing ?,there seems to be divided opinions on using stainless fixings in brakes !!
i suppose i could allways take the calipers out to m10 !

I've got titanium bolts on mine :D
Nos Exup is your man for the bolts, you will need top hat spacers though.
M8 x 40mm titanium bolts with a 14mm diameter flange and 10mm head fitted mine a treat, not sure if he has any left now, it was a while ago.
