        But you can tell everyone you have radial mounted brakes

            From what I understood, the benefit to radials over tradition brakes wasbless deflection during braking. This bracket eliminates this benefit as it uses the tradition bracket, but adds radial calipers. So I see no benefit other then the bling factor.

              And you will have more flex. Actually your braking will be worse than the 4 pot tls setup. I'm sure that is not how you want to go.

                Now try and find low cost 100 mm calipers (ducati, brembo,AP)Showa and KYB application are 109 mm . Cost-benefit= loss. T.L.

                  What I meant was the calipers with the bracket would be a better braking set up than the stock 6 pots. Will be lighter too.

                    ? I dont see how it will be lighter. There can't be more then a pound difference between non billet radial calipers and stock ones. And I would bet the bracket adds that.right back on. Also, I think the stock 6 pots would be a better setup then radials with these brackets. I bet the brackets flex so much that only half the brake pad is actually on the rotor. Also, the piston area of the radials and 6 pots are probably very similar.

                      I did the calcs the other day..

                      6 potters with all 27mm pistons: 6870.66mm2
                      4 pot radial with 30 / 34mm pistons: 6459.11mm2

                      The 6 potters have more area
