Nissin Mono Block Caliper Anyone...?

Pondering the idea of integrating the 2010 Triumph Daytona 675 Front caliper onto the ER6n. Why the 2010 Triumph Daytona 675 caliper you might ask...? The 2010 and later calipers are Mono Block calipers, which means that they are made / Machined from a single piece of forged aluminum. Much stronger, and less prone to the caliper twisting during load. Higher cost due to difficult manufacturing. the Pre 2010 Daytone is equipped with Twin-block calipers which are joined together (front and back) by two pieces with the bolts on front face, top and bottom of the caliper (usually 3 sets each). More prone to twisting. Lower cost than mono-block type.
