Has anyone tried to mount radial calipers on the old style forks yet?I know e-moto makes a kit. Was wonder if Marzzochi made a kit to change it over to.

Where are you located?

Here in the US, Motowheels makes separate kits for both the Showa and Marzzochi forks. IIRC the kit, including new fork lowers and Brembo radial calipers, runs about $1500.

I am sure you could buy the lowers seperatley from marzzochi or MV if you wanted to, that is the only difference if I'm not mistaken.

I got mine through Herr Kramer @ http://www.performanceparts.de/info_1.html


Very nice parts.. I got the kit with the radial brembos included.

the guys at http://www.racetech.com/ did the conversion, as they are one of the only shops in the the states that has the proper tool for the removal of the original fork bottom..

Braking is about 80% better. Seriously.

I was interested in doing this a year ago. I contacted Marzocchi and had no luck. But this was before the radial calipers were available stock, except for the Tamburini.

I haven't taken apart the front end on one of the new bikes, but the axle looks entirely different. Then there are the calipers and rotors are different.

There are at least three different manufacturers offering upgrade kits. MotoCorse offers one, complete with axle. This kit is very nice but most expensive.

The other kits like the one Moto Wheels sells replaces the bottoms but uses the stock axles and I believe rotors. You'll obviously need to buy calipers.

there are two sizes of calipers, 108 and 110mm. It depends if you want the mono-block $4000 calipers or the cheaper $400 calipers.

I'd send an e-mail off to eMoto or give them a call. I'm sure they can explain what's needed and the cost involved.

I have a set of Brembo HP Calipers from my K5 GSXR1000. I just need lower units thanks for all the info. You guys are so helpful. I'm glad I joined the brother hood of MV.

I wish they were stock on the Tam.!
My mistake. the tamburini appeared to get the new axle but not the radial setup.

I know exactly how you feel though! When I bought my 910 the only thing I really wanted to do was to anodize the fork tubes black and put on radial mounts. then of course the 910R comes out. ARGH! :violin:

It's very important to measure the distance between the two mount holes on the caliper. You need to figure out if you need 108mm or 110mm mounts.

Jack,
Stock system uses 100mm mount calipers to suit with the brake disks.. It is either 100 or 108mm mounts. Usually italian bikes come with 100mm mounts. As mentioned before the only difference between the 100 and 108mm mounts is the calipers that you can buy.

Andreani Group International has a complete kit (TiN treated fork too) sold at € 1.700 (VAT included AFAIK) I've seen at EICMA in Milan that fits both F4 S and Brutale S. On their site there's still no mention but maybe you have better try to ask them

You're right. I'm an idito! :) I should not post at 3 in the morning. Unless I'm drunk. :nutkick:

100mm and 108mm.
