Some new shots

Added some new shots with the DMV chain adjuster installed. After a few days riding to work, I can feel that the Brembo Pads are sitting better into the Rotors and providing even more stability especially during hard braking session. (During my daily commute to and fro office) in the heavy KL Congestion.

Brembo Caliper Mod Completed

Brembo Caliper Mod completed. GSXR750 Brembo Mono block caliper & the 310mm ZX10R Rotor mounted on the Cyclops without a glitch, completely plug & play. A last minute addition from a ZX10R OE 70mm Caliper bolt to replace the 60mm ER6n Bolt to hold the taller Brembo caliper was needed. The whole assembly looked so much beefier from the older Nissin Caliper from the ZX14 but surprisingly weights noticeably lighter. Weight reduction came from the lighter Brembo caliper & the 310mm rotor.

First ride feeling.....Right from the workshop, the single finger braking is more possible. Braking feels to be more progressive compared to the ON/OFF feeling of the ZX14 caliper. Guess I will need to let the Brembo  Pads sit into the rotor more, will comment further within a few more days.

DMV Chain Adjuster Bracket

Another additional DMV component to the Cyclops...the DMV Chain Adjuster Bracket code DMV-CA-KA-01-GD, for Versys 650 2006-2012, ER6N/F 2012 & ZX-9R1998-1999 (Sorry does not support ER6N 2008-2011). Luckily the Cyclops is hybrid ER6N & Versys. Cant wait to mount it for the additional bling to the dull silver colored Versys swingarm.

ZX10R 08-10 310mm Rotors

Manage to score myself a set of ZX10R 08-10 (which are 310mm) Rotors of the bay. They look to be true and straight from the pictures. Hopefully they are as the seller described. Stay tuned for the latest progress on the Brembo Caliper mods.

TOKICO Caliper for sale

I still have the original TOKICO from the ER6n for sale. Do PM me if you are interested.

Brembo Monoblock Caliper

Brembo Monoblock Caliper from GSXR750 has just arrived, first attempt to install had shown that the 300mm rotor of the ER6n proffed to be too small. Only 2/3 of the Rotor surface has contact with the Brembo Brake Pads. Further measurement shows that the 310mm Rotor from the ZX10R 08 09 10 will fit nicely onto this setup. Apart from that a longer caliper bolt is required as the original ZX10R 06 Bolt is about  5cm shorter.
So I'm off to the bay to scamper for a suitable ZX10R rotor.
