    It's got to be worth it though when you look at it. It'd put a smile on my face every time I took off the covers and seen that peeking out ;)

    That's the route i'll be heading down. I honestly couldn't see me getting rid of this bike. I'd rather just get the bike to the way I want it than trade it in and start again.

    Same here mate the RR7 I have now has always been much more of a bike than I am a rider, I like a fast blast but thats only part of owning it for me.. If I get to the point this ones too slow or needs more power I may trade up but I KNOW thats not going to happen...lol Bikes running a stock motor so there is some room to move if I do need a little more....lol

    Will get a pic up soon mate, its still in a few bits in the shed at the mo waiting for last few parts the mount is normally part of the HPK kit 120A44111 etc but the mount can be got if they want to split them up at £135.00 ish on its own... I love the hidden caliper but I do like to use my rear brake I know some don't but its an old habbit from my MX bikes.. if I had the dinky caliper I would burn pads at a right old rate....lol

    Evogixer.....You mention that you used "The trusty Dremel" to overcome issues. Can you tell me where you used the dremel as i'm going the same route! Cheers

    Hi everybody,

    Well I know this post is very old now, but I think everything I need to know is here.

    I would like to fit Brembo rear underslung caliper this winter, and just saw that it's not compatible with 2010 standard wheels.
    And then I found this post that say it can fit! BUT the pics doesn't exist anymore :(

    Does somebody has information about how to fit the Brembo rear underslung bracket to 2010 OEM rear wheel please?

    Well I answer to myself after hours of research on the internet, and a few emails to Japan and England.........................

    If you have aftermarket wheels, you can fit every underslung caliper system you can find. Every bracket and every calipers, because the hub of the wheel will be tinyer than the OEM one.

    If you have OEM wheels (here I only speak about 2008-2011 blades, I have no certitudes about 2012+ wheels) you can't mount the "standard" casted Brembo rear caliper, because the caliper will hit the wheel's hub.
    The billet Brembo HPK rear caliper will fit because of its shape.
    So the problem does not come from the brackets.

    Only Ladybird provides a bracket that is modded to accept standard Brembo rear caliper. The design of the bracket make the caliper lower than it actually should be, I assume that it results in the fact that the rear rotor is not bitten in all its width (maybe it misses 1 or 2 milimeters...) but that should not really affect rear braking power.

    The other solution seems to "mod" the caliper. I assume that you can "ovalise" the mounting holes of the calipers with your dremel, and then, with the help of washers, fix it to the bracket, so it will be mounted in a lower position. Just as with the Ladybird bracket. I think it's what this topic talk about.
