That's Nathan from boxerworks bike...(I think)

Here is the conversion I am chasing (also not my bike) It's a 4-piston from an early FZR 1000 that a guy in England has done.. I have the caliper and have cut down the caliper ear but haven't done much else yet...

Boxerworks sells a machined adapter to do this mod, but the caliper ends up almost below the wheel and looks to be in a bad place for off-road riding.

OK ! Pics speak more than thousan words ! Maybe it's possible tu fit a larger disc on the BMW carrier ? like a 300mm iron ?

Finding a vendor to do that is the hard part!

The G/S carrier is a five bolt one that is kinda unique.... I would like to find a US shop that can place a larger rotor on the stock carrier. There is someone in the BMWMOA magazine who does do BMW re-rotoring, but they one put the stock size onto the G/S rotors, and don't/can't do bigger ones...

For a real cheap option go for the 4 pot and increased size rotor option from these guys:

The 169 eurp price is to hang a new, stock sized rotor on your rotor carrier, these guys don't do an oversized rotor for G/S's, and don't do the oversized/4-piston set-up for 'em either..

If you have a paralever, it's 799 euro's to get the big rotor and 4-piston caliper, definately not cheap in my book

Just browsing Boxer Supplies website and I see they are now offering a 4 piston caliper for the 320mm upgrade disc for those that have it or as a complete kit including the 320mm disc.

This is the same kit made by HE sold by Siebenrock and Motoren Israel. The larger disc is available for the G/S, the whole kit for the GS.

FWIW, the G/S 260mm disc with a four piston caliper is definitely not as good as a stock GS brake. (My HPN was originally fit with a 260mm disc and a Brembo 4-pot. My GS has stock brakes.)

The 320 disc (I used the HE) with a Ducati Monster caliper (Brembo) really works.

True for paralever's but not monolevers


Think I am going to take the plunge and just get a Euro 320mm rotor for my G/S and not adapt a 4-piston caliper for now...

My only worry is finding a replacement rotor when the one on the bike wears out...

I've heard the rumor that the guys with the M.A.P. rotors on their bikes can't find replacement rotors... might not be true.

Couple of questions:
- does anyonw know who/what HE actually is (located where?, website?)?
- are you saying 4-pot with stock disk is not worth it?
- can you elaborate on 320 HE disc and Duc caliper (custom bracket? photos?...)?

thanks in advance...
