6 piston

Does anyone know of a six piston set up that would plug and play on a DL 1000 ?
Has this been discussed before?

There are adapters for Tokico 4 pot calipers, haven't seen a six. I just put the 4's on my 650 and the difference in feel is well worth the effort.

I'm running the same setup and if you ad a large bore master cylinder to the mix, the improvement is half again what the four pot calipers do. I used a 02 cbr 954 master and it was almost a direct bolt on, just a little dremmel work to square off the counter sink on the pivot bolt.
The six pots youre thinking of came on tlr's and some late 90's gixxers. They are OLD tech and the newer gixxer four pots are a MUCH better caliper.

Soooo, after searching this out, seems like you were a part of this if you use the same name on the other site.
Wher can one purchase this bracket, anyone mfg. and selling them at all?
Is it a take this diagram and have one made at a machine shop kind of thing.
Rather just purchase one.

You are confusing my GSPD(6 Piston Tokico)with the Strom(4 Piston Tokico).Buy Blair's stuff.
Pads, Bracket's and calipers are $200-$300. I had the Flu. I did the whole change out in 2+hours. It really should not take more than 1 to 11/2 hours.
