I asked Yoyodyne.. they said no.

ISR custom facility, cheaper than you think. 4mm thick, full of holes, all good.

Between the GBmoto rear caliper and hanger (there is lighter and posher, but GB moto is the best bang for buck) the disk, drilling the rear bolts, re routing the brake line, filing the rear master cylinder, switching to aluminium clevis blah blah Well over a kilo has gone.

Now if someone has a spare 10 to 15 grand... I have an excellent way to spend it

The Thorsten hidden caliper setup is cool, but heavily limits the rotors you can use from what I've seen. RC guys have had a ton of issues with them, when swapping rotors. That ti rotor is sweet. I have a machinist friend, might just have him lighten my stocker.

No modifications required, very easy install. Direct fit replacement - Just heat your stock bolts thoroughly to soften the red thread lock on them.

I would order new bolts too just in case they decide to be a pain in the D***, the last bolt broke my torq bits so I had to spin with a chisel & hammer .... Plus I like replacing bolts with new parts anyways, doesn't hurt
