Nissin 4pot calipers for the win
 
1 Attachment(s)
Just installed the SVRacingParts Nissin caliper adapter. I chose CBR600F4i calipers, as they are a black version of my RC51’s gold Nissin calipers. That bike has breath taking superb braking! That being said, I know my 2004 sv650s doesn’t have the same master cylinder or rotors, but if I can get some of the power, that’d be great! I may get an RC master at some point too! I have my clutch and basket removed right now after installing a steel oil pump gear. I am also installing the FactoryPro shift star, detent roller, and adjustable centering stud, as I have the weird second gear issue. I’m awaiting those parts, so I will update with results when I get them. By the way, calipers were $59 for the pair on eBay, adapters were a little more than that, HH pads amazon prime for , already had Galfer brake lines, and Some brake fluid that I already had. About $212 for what should be much better brakes. I was on OEM setup with Galfer HH and Galfer lines.

I cannot get the picture to sit correctly, sorry!

Just did the same exact setup, but with gold calipers. Also were about $60 on eBay and did the Galfer HH pads that I ordered from SVRP while I was ordering the brackets. I also found a "used" (but looks totally new) R6 Radial MC with PSR levers for only $130 (levers alone are $140 new).

To say that I'm thrilled with the braking performance is an understatement!

This is on my winter project list. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the improved braking experience.

I wondered about the master. I have an RC51 and the brakes are very good. I hope these are too. I may look into a different t master soon!
