    I used CBR600 calipers on my 11 with std mc, just adapter plates. These days would need an LVV cert, and fair enough having seen the Bush adapters I've seen on Buckets.

    Geez was 420% better than std. Made some braided lines up. Too long ago to remember how. Maybe I tried the originals and told them 1" longer. Likely Contour brakes.

    I've used Alert in Auckland but they were bought out by some rally chap who used his name. Had limited success with them.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    MetalGear CBR600 rotors, Concours Mk II calipers (twin spot, big'n'little), Concours master cylinder (span adjustable), FrenTubo braided lines, adapter plates. See how it goes at WoF time wrt to the LVV cert.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Duropox ??

    Hi All . I talked to the resene man about duropox and he told me it is a primer and not a top coat. He says I need an etch primer underneath . Does this sound correct. He also said he can't sell it to me as they don't sell it to the public so I will have to go through a local painter

    Yeah I thought about it and decided to go the LVV cert route. The welding on the brackets has been tested and approved and I have the certificate. I'll go over to Carterton to see Julian Cheer as he is the only semi-local 2B certifier.

    (Bonez - for your benefit - the difference between the standard Suzuki brakes and what I now have is so obvious that even a brain-dead tester at VTNZ would realise it is modified)

    i brought some walkin from resene in lower hutt, gave it all to my painter near levin as it has a shelf life and better he used it than it sat on mine for a while.
    he sorted the primer, and i used it to finish the engine cases barreels and heads on the steve roberts chopper.

    Dunno about the duropox stuff, but you certainly have to use an acid primer on the raw material if you want anything to stay on there.

    paint is on the way

    I rang resene Palmerston north . Asked for duropox and etch primer. They said a 1ltr kit of duropox consists of 1lt paint 250ml of hardener and 1ltr reducer and 1ltre of etch and 1ltr of etch hardener $180 but they would not sell it to me . Went and saw a local panel beater and he rang them and they said they only sold the hardener in 1ltr so the duropox ( no etch )would cost $270. Fuck that ! so one person there says a completely different thing to the other guy. I tried to ring them again today to find out what the go was . I could not get through to them so I tried Lower hut, Talked to a top bloke called Don . Ended up getting all I wanted ,the invoice emailed to me and I paid via internet and he was happy to courier which surprised me as its DG no charge for freight !! top man, top service !! $181.88
