    Brembo brake conversion kits

    Is there any one out there interested in Brembo brake conversion kits. If there is enough Interest I will put them into production. Kit would comprise front caliper brackets , rear caliper bracket and braided stainless steel HEL performance brake pipes ( Range of colours available) and stainless bolts and copper washers to connect straight to the standard Blackbird front and rear master cylinder. I will include matching braided clutch hose to. ( I live just down the road from the HEL performance factory and have good contacts there)
    Just add second hand calipers and your there.
    Kit would cost around £420 plus shipping
    I'm looking for a minium of 10 sets to do a run
    If there is a enough interest I will also do Front caliper brackets for Harrison billet 6 pots.
    Any engineering project can be undertaken Alloy, Ti, Carbon

    Re: Brembo brake conversion kits

    I already have all 9 lines plus clutch from Goodridge. I'd be interested in Brembo discs to replace my oems. I think it might be easier to go to Nissen(?) top of line brakes out of Japan. But my hat's off to you b/c you are rebuilding an excellent sport touring bike into something most of us can't do or afford. It's an awsome project. If I wasn't retiring in two years I might undertake some outrageous changes to my Bird. Cheers

    Re: Brembo brake conversion kits

    Thank. I agree the Blackbird is an excellent sport touring bike. Thats why I'm looking for a second one to leave standard-ish. But the Blackbird motor and frame has so much potentail to be so much more. I always wished Honda had built a sports bike around the Blackbird motor and frame. I am quite tall and heavy and after owning a number of models of fireblades I finally desided that I need a bike with a bigger frame. Although some people out there don't like what I'm doing, and there entitled to there view, most people are very interested in the project. In time I am hopeing to offer if there is enough interest the fork and swingarm conversion kits and a range of after market bodywork. The brake kit is the first venture.

    I'm interested as you already know Graham but, to be honest the price is rather high for me (cash flow is tight due to work being very sporadic at present) and I wasn't planning on doing anything to the rear apart from connecting both hoses to the Honda caliper / rear master cylinder making all 3 pistons work at the same time.

    Wreckless and I are both following what seems to be a parallel path to an engineer who quoted £150 - £200 for the front brackets to be custom made for either 40mm or 62mm centres (giving an initial choice of either Brembo or Suzuki / Kawa calipers). Not a flexible fitment you understand but, an either or decided at the time of measuring up.

    TSR used to offer a complete kit including calipers, hoses, brackets, master cylinder and lever but, I can't remember the price but, I think it was in the region of £700..............If only I knew then what I now know I'd have had them but, of course they don't offer the kit or the brackets anymore

    I also have Goodridge hoses fitted - only last year so buying replacements is gonna be a bit of a downer but, of course they'll be no good with whatever caliper/bracket setup I (hopefully) end up with but, at least the rear & clutch lines will stay as is.

    I appreciate that you need to sell in volume to make money on this but, if you saw my post a few months ago regarding this same problem I had only one person interested and the engineer wasn't gonna be bothered for 2 sets of brackets - well, not without charging extra for each unit to make up for the low volume.

    Any thoughts would be most welcome

    Cheers
    Steve

    Re: Brembo brake conversion kits

    The conversion kits will be a straight bolt on , bleed up and ride away.
    Steve if I can get the numbers I will do front bracket as a pair with out hoses for £150 plus P&P.
    The only kit I have seen was by a Japanese company and worked out at over £1800 and they wouldn't sell direct only to a authorised dealer.
    Just on another note brembo calipers are around £300 each new and billet 6-pots are £717 a pair so I would be very surprize if the the kit you were saying about is only £700.
    If I can be of any help call or mail me.
    Cheers Graham

    I am realistic enough to be planning for 2nd hand calipers and new hoses Graham, the bike is less than pristine (see my Avtar) and is 9 years old but, of course brakes are mighty important to me so I'd overhaul whatever calipers I end up with before using them................

    The problem seems to be as always - affordable caliper mounts

    Fingers crossed your post gets the numbers up to a high enough level so we can all afford the upgrade

    Cheers
    Steve

    When did Goodridge introduce a 9 line kit for the XX? When I talked to them 4 years ago they said there wasn't enough interest in it to produce. How much was the kit, and where did you get it? I have the mix and match (aluminum fittings & cheap ass bolts, SS lines) Speigler kit, and while the performance of the braided lines is far superior to the stock rubber lines, I am concerned about the long term effects of the different metals. Plus, the installation "directions" were a joke and some of the lines for the right front caliper barely fit.

    To say that I have been disappointed with the Speigler kit would be an understatement.

    Very good service from Nippy Norman's but, maybe not much use to anyone outside the UK due to shipping / tax issues?

    Re: Brembo brake conversion kits

    My Goodridge brake lines, clutch as well came from Jaws. Note the BB page. I think I paid 200 Sterling. The clutch kit was cheap. But, it took five hours to install and bleed. With my Pazzo leavers she brakes well. But I'd love to upgrade my brakes. However, it aint cheap. I'd like a top of the line Nissan brakes but Brembro would be NICE. It's not easy ordering from Japan.
