Hi, I have been watching this thread with some interest, since I have been producing and providing the GSXR Brake Caliper Adapter Brackets to the SV community for the past year, and this topic was broached last spring with me by some of the forum members, who posted up on this forum, wondering if they could bolt the same kit onto the various VStrom models.
These kits have been sold into many countries around the world, as the riding community is very global. I have been quieltly working on releasing the versions for the DL650 and DL1000 in between other projects since then.
Since this thread was posted, I have been emailed by a number of members and been asked again if my SV Racing Parts, Brake Caliper Adapters would work, and I have responded that not as a direct cross over, but we are going to be releasing the DL650 and the DL1000 versions in a couple of weeks.
Like all my parts, and products they will be high quality in manufacture, and in finish.
I am attaching a sample of what they look like on the SV, where I offer them in Anodized Silver or Anodized Black finish.
The SV Racing Parts, Vstrom Brake Caliper Adapter Brackets, will all be done in black, including the mounting hardware, and the steel back plate, for the 10mm bolts to secure the adapter brackets to the forks, will also be plated in black.
No boring or drilling is required, and the GSXR 600 2001 - 2003, the GSXR 750 2000 - 2003, and SV1000 for all model years simply bolt right up.
We are running about 200 of these Brake Caliper Adapter Brackets on the first run so they will be readily available to anyone who wants to upgrade their brakes.
I actually use this set up with the stock front Master Cylinder, on my SV650 Race Bike, and the change in the stopping power is awesome.
This brake upgrade works very well without changing the master, SS Brake Lines, and upgraded master cylinders just make it even better,
Enjoy the ride, and best regards,
