Rear brake calliper frustration

2006 R6 Track only.
I use my track bike a lot , on average twice a month.
So I am going through tyres and or flipping the rear on a regular basis.
I am getting annoyed at the floating rear calliper and my lack of three arms.
Yes I know how to wedge my foot underneath to hold it but I'm still over it.

I read somewhere once that there is a solution to this by securing it in situ
Does anyone have this set up or have a link to where and how I can do this.
Cheers

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.

Re: Rear brake calliper frustration

There's another option to flip the axle, or so I've read....No money

I'll 2nd the Fast Frank stuff.
If you simply want to keep the caliper mount stationary then you can just get a piece of PVC pipe that is nearly the same diameter and cut it to the proper length (cost a buck and is what I did for ever on past bikes) or go silly and grab an old axle and cut it to length.
I'm considering just putting a short weld on mine over the winter. If I screw up then I but FF.

this captive rear caliper thing would be the answer to your prayers..

flipping the adjusters to the opposite sides of the swing arm, and pushing the axle from the right side, will make it somewhat easier and is free.

the axle helper thing is somewhat helpful too, but i would just flip the axle or get the Fast Frank captive thing.
