Going to four pots on the front calipers.

I see that you can purchase adapter kits to install high(er), performance brakes for my DL1000. Where is the best place, (and what model is the choice to go GSXR or CBF), to source out larger bakes please? eBay?? Nothing jumps out at me there.

I found my CBR 954 calipers in Craigslist.
Look in vendors for SV Racing. I got the adapters from him. Might as well get new lines from him, too.

I put 4 pot calipers on my old BMW airhead along with stainless braided brake lines. The combination made a HUGE difference in the front braking.

Dene, the best place is right here across the strait from you. PM me with a price (US$) for both the adapters and recently overhauled SV1000 Tokico calipers.
