Cruel indeed, tempting a Victorian in stage 4 lock down laughingdp

Nice work though. Smiley

Perhaps some of the 4-pad calipers might be an improvement, but at the weight I'm guessing for your bike, not likely to amount to much better.

Saw the round versions of those Motogadget mirrors, quite amazing.

Matte clear on the wheels may be a bit harder to clean but it'll hide brake dust better, and it'll better match the other carbon.

Honestly, aesthetic decisions at this altitude are way above my pay grade.  Tongue

I've never heard of 4 pad calipers.. So.. they're the same but with 4  individual pads for each caliper?
But yeah.. probably not needed.
I went for these mirrors because they can be adjusted sideways a bit. I wanted them tweaked in a fairies fart... others don't do that. They do look good though. There's a youtube vid on how they're made.
Brake dust on matte looks the same!!  I'm learning from you blokes all the time!  chug

There's a few more fluffy things done, carbon headlight bucket, painted bezel, mesh grill, made the tail section in carbon. Made a carbon shift link... blah blah blah.

Then... Like I said ages ago, I want to tidy the wiring. I have a mofset reg to go in. I also have a TPS and hall effect ignition pickups from fastbikegear and a M unit blue to go in.
OH yeah... I'll probably lose the rear view cam and re-arrange the dash again..

BUT the big one is the heads!!  now we wait for DYNO
