Thanks peeps.

I've read through the whole thread and my impression on the 6-pot from the various posters is that while it provides more braking power than the 4-pot, the feel is lost. Neither do I want brakes that are too bitey. I may be wrong though, others may have different opinions.

Only for the R100GS/PD, or R80GS. 1988>1995.

If you want it for something else, I will shut up.
Ahhh...what you don't know is my R80G/S has a R100GS front-end, and a Harrison 6-pot caliper that needs pads. I 've got a Tokico6 on a shelf at home that doesn't. Cost of pads (3 sets) for Harrison is WAY more than throwing a new caliper on....
so shut yer pie-hole Thanks for trying to help though!

Of course now I had to read the whole dang thread...so now I'll be sending $ paypal instead of just thinking about it!

I found the 4-pots worked really well, and never used more then 2 fingers, even when fully loaded or 2-up headed down STEEP hills.....

Adapters will go out in todays mail.

Thanks everyone for the quick payment. The kits are all boxed, addressed, and will be off in the mail today.

I have orders filled for all that were on the wait list, plus a couple others that just jumped in. This leaves me with two kits left, so anyone else who is interested please contact me (before sending paypal) to confirm availability.

Thanks again!
Guy

I have had both the 4, and now the 6pot on my GS, and since a proper bleed of the brake, and a few rides, the 6 is by far the better option IMHO.
Feel is not a big issue as I 1st thought.

The weak point I see now is the pathetic back drum.


Any upgrade is better than standard.

HPMGuy, if you had one on your list for The Couger ( in Australia), he is on 4 weeks holidays, and not near a computor.
He still wants one though.

I have one set aside for The Cougar, he mentioned he would be off of the grid for a while. Thanks.

I'll be checking a local Hose and Gasket shop who makes hydraulic
lines for equipment. I've seen them build one in about ten minutes and pressurize them too.

I'll bet any place such as this can fix you up.
