    So what's people's thoughts on upgrading the calipers on a RR6?
    Is it worth doing and what do you suggest?
    I've already got Hel braided lines.
    I've heard a lot of people recommend Brembo M4s and heard good things about the new Hel performance kit. But did see a post on here about the accossato calipers from BDS.

    I can't seem to find the size online, so are the calipers 100mm or 108mm.

    They are all very good.

    Best bang for buck is rcs19 or equivalent and decent pads /braided lines if you haven't already. Calipers after that.

    I already forked out for a new master cylinder last year after the internals went. Got decent pads in and already have braided lines fitted, so thought next on list was calipers.

    Nice one. I'm not sure on sizing for that model but someone will come through soon.

    I'm using m4 brembos but there are a new version you may want to look at in the gp4rs.

    Hel get great reviews too

    I will also add that I'm not intending to take my bike on the track.
    So are the gp4rs usable on the road as I've just read the right up for them and it says that they designed for track use.
