Thumbs up SV Racing Parts, 4 Piston Brake Caliper Adapter Brackets

Hi, 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 Stromtrooper members, who posted up on this forum, wondering if they could bolt the same kit onto the DL650 and DL1000 Vstrom models.

These kits have been sold into many countries around the world, as the riding community is very global. $65 with $10 Flat Rate Shipping, to your door, anywhere in the USA.

I have been quietly working on releasing the versions for the DL650 and DL1000, in between other projects, since then. Email me at b.layton@svracingparts.com and I will look after you right away,

Like all my parts, and products they are high quality in manufacture, and in finish.

I am attaching a sample of what they look like as a kit, and how they are mounted, Anodized Black finish,, and them mounted on the Vstrom. They Look and Work Great,



Mock up showing how to mount bracket


Mounted with the Tokico Calipers on the Vstrom




The SV Racing Parts, Vstrom Brake Caliper Adapter Brackets, are done in Anodized Black, and include black mounting hardware.

The steel back plate, for the 10mm bolts to secure the adapter brackets to the forks, is plated in nickel to resist corrosion.

No boring or drilling is required,

The GSXR 600 2001 - 2003, the GSXR 750 2000 - 2003, and all model years SV1000, Tokico Brake Calipers simply bolt right up. Super easy install.

I have run 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.

They provide better stopping power and far better feel and control of the brakes. Better everywhere including gravel and dirt off road conditions,

This Brake Caliper Upgrade works very well with or without changing the OEM front brake master cylinder.

Galfer SS Brake Lines, and upgraded master cylinders just make it even better,

I have the Galfer SS Brake Lines in Black to match your other cables and controls in stock, as well as the superb Galfer HH Sintered Brake Pads for the Calipers in stock, and ready to ship. The Brake Lines are $89.95 and the Brake Pads are $35 per set.

I highly recommend that you change out the brake pads on any used set of calipers you get, simply because you have no idea where and how they were stored, or what someone else may have spilled or sprayed on them in the name of cleaning.

I carry the correct superb Galfer HH Sintered Front Brake Pads, $35 per caliper set, so $70 total, for pads you know you can trust is cheap insurance, and they are awesome in stopping power, last, and do not fade as you ride. You will like these.

The Brake Caliper Adapter Brackets, and the requisite mounting hardware are $65 with $10 Flat Rate Shipping, to your door, anywhere in the USA.

Any questions about your own bike, or shipping to wherever, etc, Email me directly at b.layton@svracingparts.com and I will look after you right away.

Enjoy the ride, and best regards,
Blair

It is all going to depend on the price of calipers. They generally run around 50 to 75 off of Ebay. Of course some are cheaper, and some more expensive. So with new pads, without lines, your looking at around 200.00.Throw in lines and your going to be pushing 300.00.

Thumbs up

Well, I just finished a complete brake overhaul and upgrade. First, big thanks go out to Blair for making these brackets available, as well as for his great service with all the other parts I ordered!

Besides the SV-1000 calipers, I also installed Galfer HH pads up front and in the back, Galfer steel braided brake lines up front and in the back, as well as master cylinder bleeder valves for both. In addition, Blair got me some Galfer DOT 5.1 brake fluid to bring it all together.

The install was pretty straight forward, but I took my time to get it all right the first time. I'm very happy and impressed with the results, the bike can truly do two-finger stops now. Here are some photos of the finished product.

Default worth every penny, do this and the fork brace

The GSXR calipers with Blair's Brackets made for a super short emergency stop today. First opportunity after the snow melted to get out for a few hours, found myself going a bit too fast with some unexpected traffic. Fork braces also a fall/winter install... my 09 Vee is like a new(er) bike. Scour Ebay for the GSXR or SV1000 calipers, buy Blair's brackets, and make this change while the winter keeps the Motorcycling hours short. Two finger braking for sure.
