Hi Solo...that would be me. I'll post the pic again, and your right the caliper is from a K1100RS. Also posted is a Spiegler (german) rotor and caliper on a friends GSPD. It is an amazing brake (2 fingers will do the job)...but you get what you pay for and the whole assy including SS line is about $1000 USD. ouch.

Comparing your nissis mod to my 4pot brembo i see the similarities. We both
only gained a small amount of stopping power. It was enough to make it 'noticeable' and therefore worth the time and effort for the small amount of $ we invested. That small but still signifigant amount of stopping power just may be enough to prevent whacking something hard one day...we hope.
...good job Solo and thanks for sharing
