Shout out to SV Racing

I decided to give the front brake mod a try. I found some 4 piston calipers on flea bay for $80 and Blair from SV racing hooked me up with the rest. I have to say I'm impressed with SV Racing. I entered my order around 6PM. Same night I got an email from Blair saying my order was boxed up and going out in the morning. What more could I ask for. I highly recommend SV Racing to anyone who needs parts.

Ordered a peg lowering kit-had it in a couple of days-fit like should and actually makes a heck of a difference in comfort--of course I am an old guy with two resurfaced hips. Thanks SV Racing---by the way it took longer to install than the 3 minute video.

Yeah, I completed the 4 pot brake upgrade about a month ago and the braking improvements with the Nissin calipers were AMAZING!!!

As predicted, time goes by, new people come in, tribal knowledge is lost.

I invented the foot peg and control lowering kit. Others copied it and put their name on it.
