    Just purchased a 97 TLS and by Christ the brakes are found wanting.... Any recommendations on where to purchase some braided lines?

    Christ won't help you. And his dad rides a hardly so brakes are not much of a feature. Suppose everyone or thing gets out of his way.

    RF900, Late GSXR11 etc will give up its Nissin 4 pots. I just bought some for my RGV to replace miserable Tokikos.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    Nah, SRAD gixxer will go. 320mm rotors on the TL. So RF won't work.

    Sorry if disinformation. Usually they just present different fork lug spacing and run similar calipers I thought. Like R1 calipers fit older 320mm Yams despite early R1 being 298mm from memory of blurb.

    Somewhat after the fact but no matter fwiw TLS didnt have 6 pots oem came with previous mentioned 4 pots,TLR might have cant remember but doubt it,6 potters off Busas bolted straight up as i tried a set years back.To fit GSXR forks and use radial calipers spacers and longer caliper bolts needed with the TLS discs.

    The r1 is 310mm but the calipers do indeed fit and work with the 320MM disc as long as it on a TZR250 IKT FZR1000 or FZR250 with the single disc.
    There is a brembo 4 spot gold that fits that came std on the XJR's and i think TRX's as well in Jap spec.
    The other calipers from other Yams like the RZ250's can generally be replaced with Triumph spec Nissians of a certain age.

    Which R1? First model was 298mm. I used some calipers on my YZF750SP and people use them on TDMs and just about anything.
    I have some Triumph calipers I bought by mistake when I abscent mindedly forgot my Yamaha was actually in Suzuki chassis. Must sell those at some stage.

    You are right Dave the later ones with the radials are 310mm.
    The guy with all the RD and RZ was building a special ask him if he wants the calipers.

    The thing with he blue spots is not to get the very first model ones with the outside link pipe.

    the brempbos for the Yamahas are off a
    XJR400*XJR1200*XJR1300
    AS far as i know they are the only ones made in 100mm pitch

    to get them or the R1 calipers to work with a spoked wheel you need a disc spacer or another 3 model only special offset disc.
