Exactly how much are you guys taking off the caliper mount? Are you trimming just the mount down, or the spacer that the mount bolts to too? It looks to me like getting the caliper to mount would make the actual mount paper thin (not to mention that the way the caliper sits only uses 3/4's of the rotor)... Am I missing something?

Other than that it seems pretty straightforward (other than machining down the sprocket mount if you wanna do that).

thanks in advance

doesn't that leave the hanger with only a 4 or 5mm thickness though, and don't you find that a bit worrying? Oh, and two other questions: Did you machine down the sprocket carrier to gain those extra few mm's, or did you just leave it a bit offset. And, how much larger is the SV's rear rotor? 20mm's?

thanks a ton for the info.

Huh, well with the old model hangers and rotors you have to deal with a different hanger (not GSXR) and an SV rotor (not GSXR and therfore slightly larger diameter) which means you have almost no material left when you machine down the hanger, and you either have to get an early SV rotor to make up the difference in rotor size (from what I've heard) or a GSXR hanger to provide more material inboard to work with.

I guess the answer is to use a GSXR/02+SV rotor with a GSXR hanger (which has a little more material on the inside). And then flip the front sprocket around (the GSXR 750 rear definitely doesn't line up perfectly with the 99 front sprocket). Or, maybe that bandit rear is a 5.0?

Problems, problems, problems... And an F3 rear would have been so simple...

Maybe the best option is just to weld part of a spacer to the caliper mount if it gets too thin, rather than having the captive spacer come all the way out to meet the caliper mount, eh? Off to that then.

I'll check his stuff out when I bring over the triple (assuming he's with you guys again). However, it'd be nice if it was already on the bike by sears.

I'd normally harrass you about how exactly you got the wheel on, Z, but seeing as you usually get paid to do that, I'll leave it be.

thanks for the heads up.

Yeah, after emailing Ev, I figured that one out.

So, why won't you be doing it again? I'm up against the same problem (welding stuff onto the mount to reinforce it), and if you've got any downsides to using the 180 rear with the sv/gsxr caliper/hanger/carrier etc, I'd love to know it.

thanks for the info Zoran.

problem is, I need it on the bike for the Sears race, which is the next time I'll see you... Well, hopefully Julian will have some solution by tonight.

Well, I just got my 180 tire mounted on my F3 wheel and it looks a little....let say tight....I don't think that a 5" wheel should really have a 180 tire on it, but I'm going to give it a try. It'll be mounted tomorrow and I'll be doing a write-up on the install. is a 180 really toooo wide for a 5" before I go out and kill myself?

No it is okay, it should be fine.
