R1 Brakes on the GSXR

For those of you that don’t know, the R1 radial calipers are apparently much better than the GSX-R standard ones. There is nothing, per say, wrong with the standard ones, it’s just the R1’s are better. This was mentioned to me by other K6 riders while at Mallory my first time out on the bike that it was a good upgrade. It’s got me thinking of doing it as I am tempted to swap brake pads to get a better initial bite and it would make sense to do it at the same time. Apparently all you need is a spacer and they fit straight on.

My plan is to do my final fettling to the Gixxer to get it ready for Mallory and the start of my season. Not that much to do now,  hehe not that there was much to do anyhow so why it has taken me so long to get around to it I don’t know. If I get it done earlier rather than later then it leaves more time to mess about with the van, when it arrives.

Do you have anything you'd like to add?
