All the factory brake lines are out. Core Moto lines going in. Clip-ons, Brembo RCS, all my little Ti trinkets, SBS pads, going on. Intake and tank back on. I have been cleaning every inch and crevice of this bike. What a pain. I am pretty sure it’s scooped up a yard of dirt when it slid off the track.

I do have one gripe about the Brembo brake system. It only has a dual banjo bolt for the master cylinder, I feel like it should have a single in the package as well. Plus it is fine thread which is a nice additional pain in the a$$, because nobody carries that locally so I have to order it.

The local shop is getting some in. I was hoping do you have the brakes completely done this weekend, but the universe has different plans. :lol

Progression is slow because I’m with the baby until roughly 9p, but tonight I got the rear master delete, CoreMoto rear line in and bled, brake side woodcraft clip on all set, and the front brake lines all on with new SBS pads. I need a single banjo still, but that’s on the way. Still gotta do the clutch side clip-on but that’ll be tomorrow night.

Still waiting for my parts from Driven for the clutch side rear set and then once that’s done it’s bodywork time. That part im not looking forward to quite as much, but I’ll get it done anyways.

It’s not much, but it’ll do for racing next season. Well, besides that I need a brake lever guard which I’ll get this weekend.

Well plus the KTech guts going into the forks here shortly.

Are those factory wheels? Im interested to know how you did them if they're indeed factory wheels? I just picked up a set and wanted something more unique then just black to go with my 04 candy apple red
Hey, sorry late reply. No they are OZ Piega wheels. They came black but they are painted the Yamaha Blue.

My bike is there, somewhere, peeking in the back. Interesting evolution regarding the brembo brakes. Newer GP models on the Bimmer, previous model on the M. Both 40mm symmetrical vented TI pistons used for MotoGP wet setup with massive but progressive stopping power.
