  2. Can Pre-2005 rear brake calipers be used on a 2006 Bird?

    Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes

  8. Other brake calipers fitment onto XX?

    General CBR XX Discussion
    I'm thinking about de-linking my brakes on the XX. Has anyone tried using brake calipers from other bikes (without linked-brakes) to rid of the linked brakes system on the XX? :confused:
