Yea bud! Exactly what I need. Would you please open them up and see if the sockets can be saved? I am gonna PM you.
I believe I have a set from a 350f but I cant check them for another two weeks as I'm at work right now.

Looking very good. If the rest turns out like that and the engine you'll have one heck of a good looking Honda added to the herd.

I miscommunicated one of my needs and flat out forgot HALF of my needs. haha.
But, it all worked out super. Thanks Matt.

Thanks fellas.
Following Irks lead on a brake upgrade.

Barely adequate, horribly Squeaky, Crazy heavy - Factory Brake Set up...


C887BD7F-F6DF-4038-A4D4-1382CC3DC93F_1_201_a.jpeg


I'd like to add a dual piston - Suzuki, SV650 Tokico...

1D45396C-9EBB-4EAD-B7A1-2DAC3FA852C8_1_201_a.jpeg


Along w a Kawasaki Ninja rotor.

80CD08E4-A0DF-4EAB-A4E4-D140A32045CF_1_201_a.jpeg


Starting w a paper template and best guess. haha

F3F0736A-B2F5-4867-A348-B01FCF927345.jpeg


Hand filing to ensure both mounts are parallel AND square w the rotor.
Ugh this was the worst part of the whole mod.

3 pieces total, top plate is 1/4" and two bottom are 3/8" thick aluminum.

Center plate will transfer all braking force to the fork lower.
The two 8mm bracket bolts won't see any force.
Other than holding the thing on.

Fresh kit going in...

Ok continuing on from last post...Ugh. Part two - Brake upgrade.

32088DBF-B1EB-440B-BC0E-6F9B7EE6B587.jpeg


I made a video showing the pads on the rotor, but know I can't seem to find it...weird.
They look to have a nice, straight contact on the rotor.
I guess you just have to trust me, I like to keep my skin on my body. haha.

Copper sulfate solution warming in the ultrasonic on the patio.
Doing a fancy Irk Miller etch, to dress it up a bit.

22 minutes in the bath gave it a nice deep etch.
I may cut some details into the leaves later.
