Brake De-Link...

... This is Seb's latest version of his De-Link kit, - the Evo III.

You can see how the caliper mount brackets have tidied up this area... and replaced the secondary master cyl and all it's bits. Note the ported block serving the third piston - this does away with another hose...

Fasteners are stainless steel...

Pro-Bolts...

... Titanium axle pinch bolts (M8 x 45) are virtual replicas of the Honda one's, except the concave area in the head is a little deeper for even more weight saving. Titanium disc bolts also.

Finish is excellent...

Yep, gorgeous! Lot of work in there. Wish I could come to the Bash and drool.
Which double bubble is that please?

And I used...

... the same style of bolt (flanged hex head, M8 x 25) for the front hangers. I think they look better than the stock ones.

Ohlins lurking in the background...

If anyone...

... is going down the route of Titanium nuts and bollts, - I have all the sizes sussed and matched to the Pro-Bolt part numbers. This makes things a little easier when you phone 'em...

Bruce...

... The d/bubble is an MRA one (German) from M & P Direct.

These ones have the graduated blackened area at the bottom for hiding the back of the clocks and wiring. Very tidy...

sure is the dogs 'd's

:bow: you've certainly made a good job of your bike, I like the rear indicators, they set the back end off a treat,:bow:
I for one would certainly appreciate the part no's for pro bolt against the honda no's, and maybe list their location, ie front pinch bolt = etc,
:bow:

... here you go Ian. I don't know the Honda part No's but this is the list I made up after returning from there last week.

The prices you see are for each, so they are not bloody cheap, BUT - the finish on them is superb... and they are so light..!

Oooops...

... just realised that the bolt described as "exhaust Hanger Bracket" is not going to apply to most people.

It's one I had to get 'cos of the fitting of the Ohlins preload adjuster. This needed a longer bolt...

Sorry for any confusion...

Rob - fookin aweseom mate

I'm not a big red fan, but yours is fookin fantastic. I love the attention to detail mate; the wheels are the dogs and quality bolts and nuts make a huge difference. I also like the cans (now where have I seen those before? :}).
I also have the gold rear Renthal sprocket & the Harris carbon hugger.
Out of interest does your MRA screen fit flush against the fairing as the O/E does or is there a bit of a gap?
Looking forward to seeing it at the bash mate and meeting you :beer:

Very Nice !

Really like the polished bits and the sprocket/titanium bolts set it off a treat, even though it ain't got a gory paint job !!

You should get yourself on Johns list for the front indicators like me and Ian, they should look pretty damn good as well.

Cool ! :yo:
