    If they're for the 860, you need the early ones with wide gaps to suit thick discs.
    i have a late pair here but they suit 5mm thick discs. Which is fine for a post classic racebike build.

    Not really replicas when they're still made by Brembo, Bevel Heaven is very good to deal with, I would suggest Galfer Green pads to go with them as the best pad I have tried in them

    I didn't know F08's were made different widths. This 860 came as a project and has 6.4mm thick discs but one is cast iron and one stainless steel so they will be replaced. If 5mm discs are available the calipers you have could work.

    Mine came from a guy who wanted original width. Do your research on discs - Metalgear probably do something suitable or a later floating Brembo maybe through Bevelheaven. How original do you want it ?

    This bike followed me home as an incomplete basket case. Originality isn't a goal.

    Well, race clip-ons, highway pegs and a flame paintjob seem to be in order.

    Maybe a fairing on the back. . .
    Might start a new 'thing'
    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?
