My six pots arrived today - had to buy the pair so if anyone has a use for a RHS one it is going cheap .

Mine were of a ZX6R , and have lousy organic pads in them .

Next step is Cyclebrakes - HH sintered pads and a 43" line incl posage will cost less than the line alone in Oz.

Another update.

After many phone calls, and working with UPS, we have located the package. It somehow got lost in the abyss, but according to UPS it will be here tomorrow morning. The way this has been going, I don't want to count the chickens before they are hatched, but I should be able to finally ship out the kits tomorrow. I will post as soon as they arrive.

Thank you all for your patience.

Beemerboff, make sure 43" hose is long enough.
I have a 46" on mine, and wouldnt want any shorter.

Are they making a custom one for you?? Standard BMW wont fit caliper.

My 6pot had metallic pads in them when I got them, so am running them until they, or me wears out.

The more I ride with the 6pot, the better it feels.

Thanks for that - Cyclebrakes have revamped their site, and their pricing , and I couldnt find the custom hoses anyway.

Last set of pads I got were $23- - now they are $37- and if the hoses have gone the same I will order the bits from NZ and make one myself.

I read somewhere that 43'' was the length, but I checked last night and combining the two hoses that I have gave me 46" and the top section is as short as I would want it as I have bar raisers, so 47'' it will be.
Or 1500 mm of hose if I go the Kiwi way.

Just spoke to the franchise guy who does the hoses on the plant for our construction equipment.

He was quite dismissive of SS braided hose - his opinion was that modern rubber hose will outperform SS braided hose in any test - according to him rubber hoses are a lot better than the used to be , and cope easily with the high pressure control and operating systems on huge pieces of construction equipment.

It is also much cheaper - he quoted $35- for a 48" rubber line with a banjo each end, and $105- for a SS braided one.

Much cheaper than the auto specialists around here, and he comes to our door and makes to sample on the spot.

I have bar risers on mine as well. 46" seems about right, allows for up and down movement of the forks without stretching.

I paid around $95 for my braided hose to get made up.

Not sure on the rubber hose being better

Kits Ready to Ship!

The bolts finally arrived today, so the kits are ready to ship. Thank you all for being so patient, I was even beginning to wonder if they actually existed, or if someone was just playing a joke on me.



I will email or pm everyone on the wait list.

Price is $37.50 including shipping (in the states). I can accept payment by PayPal to sales@hendersenprecision.com, or check.

Thanks,
Guy

Hi Guy. I haven't been following this thread as much. This adapter kit is for which brake caliper? For use on the 100GS?

They are to to adapt a 4 piston Nissin, or 6 piston Tokico caliper to the 100GS using the stock rotor. The list of the bikes that use these calipers is a few lines up on the thread.

crash a ron, I am not trying to be smart, but if you want one for your R80G/S, I dont think it will fit.
Only for the R100GS/PD, or R80GS. 1988>1995.

If you want it for something else, I will shut up.

Solo et al, is this the correct 4-pot caliper? Just making sure as the seller isn't sure which bike it came from...
