    Hi Salty, Bunyip here again, just to confirm with you, you recommend the Ninja EX650 calipers, GS550 front brake rotors and a set of your brackets and I should be good to go or stop better in this case. Do I need certain year models as I am not sure if the bikes here in Oz would be the same named/model as the U.S.A.

    Cheers for your help.

    You either need the late 80’s Ninja, the Kawasaki concourse or for the newer caliper you can use Vstrom 650 or EX650. There are a lot of choices.

    if you send me pics Or links I can tell you if they’ll work.

    I would definitely recommend Honda CBR F3 or F4 or VFR rotors over GS550 but they will work. Again if you send me pics/links I can tell you if they’re the right ones.

    Hi Monk, I clicked on the link but I can't see what the brackets cost mate, I am very interested in getting them, I have cross referenced models and makes for the calipers and now know what I need.

    Cheers

    Good stuff, thanks Carl. Be careful of the bracket bolt to rotor rivet clearances and also check the clearance of the speedo drive dust shield to the fork leg.

    Cheers,

    Dan
