That looks like a good position. Not too far back.
The brake spring and switch are in the way of the swingarm as it sits in that pic. I only need about 1/2 inch more of clearance, what I have in mind for the mounting plate should take care of that. As for the heel guards, hmm, still thinking.redwillissuperman said:Eliminate the heel guard mumbo jumbo and attach to the frame. Done.
If you want a heel guard, go off the tube.

My twin plug head conversion has been finished and media blasted .... can't wait ! ;D
BTW - they have a new website www.lonesometwin.com
As soon as I collect it I'll flag pix up. Yea, the website has been done by the guys that started the site off ...... NOT their day job, but they've put a lot of effort into it.canyoncarver said:I look forward to seeing that head conversion Beach. I have a login to the new lonesometwins site. I really wished they went with a better forum platform but at least they upgraded and were able to keep alot of content.
Not sure on the bore size, the rear is always a single disc so I'm going to give it a go. I don't have the number for the caliper piston size handy either. I'll look them up.doc_rot said:good to know, what is the size of the bore on the MC? im gonna need one for a brake swap soon on my 1000
Here is the closeup of the rear master. I'm using a very similar rear caliper to yours, mine is off a kz1000.doc_rot said:sometimes the bore size is stamped in the body of the casting. I am still undecided on the rear caliper i want to use and that will dictate the bore size I need. I think the stock KZ MC is 5/8ths. most newer bikes use small single piston rear calipers and need a much smaller MC. but like you said, try it and see how it works.
Got them last night, they look great!clem said:Hey I just got a set from him for the DS7 and they look good. You'll be happy.
