Brembo rear caliper

Looking to get the HP front calipers for my '07 but would also like to get the HP rear caliper as well. Looks like the rear bracket is no longer available by either Brembo or by Carrozzeria. Anybody have any idea on how to get the rear HP mounted?

I'd really like to go the Brembo route, but if I can't get the rear I will have to figure out some other alternative.

Re: Brembo rear caliper

Dude, why? Why blow the money on something that's solely for bling? You're on the TRACK! And you just got your Intermediate bump!


If you REALLY wanna throw some money at the bike, buy suspension. Skip the calipers all together dude.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

I wanna finish up the brakes then move on to suspension.

That's bass ackwards. The R6 brakes are phenomenal once you throw some lines and maybe some pads on the bish. The stock suspension isn't even THAT bad, but the rear shock leaves a lot to be desired.



Really man... For the money you're about to throw at it, please buy some magnesium rims instead or something.. You'll get so much more from those than flippin' calipers.

I'm serious dude... Not even trying to be mean here. Calipers like that for a person with your skill level (or shit, even MY skill level, or most people running around in A group's skill level) will NOT do you nearly as much good as seat time and maybe suspension. I can't think of a bigger waste of money, aside from a sportbike headrest.

RIP Matt (Ghost R6). You will be greatly missed. Be smooth and the rubber turning till we meet again.
