Bloody hell, that's a serious haul!! Very very jealous. Just when I'm happy with my bike you fella's keep moving the goal posts. I'm going to have to get a second job such as bank robbery. Enjoy buddy
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

You will be surprised at the extra power they give you and braking power as well, less weight to spin and less weight to stop plus your caliper upgrade, they look like sc pads which are very very good.

Hopefully, I will report back next week once everything is fitted and I've had a good play

Is BST only making wheels for the later generation Ohlins or you can also find for the axial ones from the early R's?

I must ask you now,before you install those beautifull brake calipers.
What is your review about the rcs brake master with the stock calipers.
It is a noticeable improvement over the near perfect(for me)stock setup?

Geobarb what you get when upgrading to the radial mc is a much better feel from the brakes. The power is still there but it is more linear when apply the brakes. That is the main difference and to my opinion depending on the rest of the setup it is a well worthy upgrade

With original setup the power is there alright but to be honest I never like the on/off feel when wanting to brake from lower speeds...that feeling is improved with the Brembo MC

Hey man the wheels are that good you will see how slow your bike handled before.Really really do make that much difference . I fitted the tyres to mine totally by hand.Took them to be balanced and needed 15g on the back and 10g on the front.You can get black weights as well.
It's like being on rails. banked over wheelies too!
Fookin great!
I used to be uncertain , but now i'm not sure anymore

Well they are finally on Big smile, slight delay due to getting a quick shifter fitted as well lol




Unfortunately the weather is not looking good this weekend but will go out for a run later to bed the tyres & brakes in and then off to Newquay on Monday hopefully.
