I guess that's mainly ride height adjustments then. Incidentally, aren't the Brembo's you have currently, generally regarded as being better than the 6 pot Nissin's anyway?

Also must apologise about the sideplates/swingarm comment, I don't know why I thought the Tambo's were gold, of course, they're not!

ps. Nigel, someone bought the Bike Specialists dearer Tambo of the two it would appear!

I never said I was going to install them lol. I'd like to possess the original parts. The oem Tambo rotors are different as well.

Yes I clocked them, well, in the very rare chance I see any of the parts you're after in passing I'll be sure to let you know!!

The rear shock/connecting rods are very different on the Tambo as well, affecting the rear geometry. The OEM front tire is a 65 series, which I didn't know either. I thought all the 1000 F4's used 70 series tires in the front. As I go through her I'm noticing many differences. For example, it doesn't use wellnuts on its modified airbox (for the TSS I'm assuming). There's just a small hole for the panel bolt and it's threaded on the intake side.
All of the early 750 F4s had the steeper steering head support, and came oem with the 65 series front tire. The tambo was an early 1000, so its possible it had some aspects of the early 750 but I am not an expert. What i have noticed is that the mag frame plates appear to have two holes compared to the single hole on the aluminum plates for the shock pivot bolt. I assume some alteration is possible here, but would require a different height adjuster, so that may be the case. I'd be interested in looking at the tambo airbox more closely, I had done some previous design work to play with updated the early F4 with the TSS from the 2010+ but I lost my CAD files when my old company's computers were hacked a few years ago.

Sure, we can pop it off at the gap if you want. Or whenever you're in NYC.

According to the workshop manual the Tambo should have a 70 profile front!?!

Maybe it's a regional thing. I'm pretty sure I saw 65 somewhere. Could be wrong...

750's use the 65....everything else uses 70s.... I use a 70 on my SPR, but I did have to make some brackets to raise the fender so it wouldn't rub at the leading edge.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
