What lines did you go with? My 996 will soon have the "radials", and I'll need a set. I've seen the motowheels setup, but really don't care for the 90 degree bend at the caliper. Any insight on this would be appreciated.

Re: Question for those who have converted to radial calipers. (Tornado-rider)

Do you not like the 90 degree due to looks or do you think it will hender performance?

I really don't care for the looks... I think a more subtle bend would look a bit more professional.

You can get a custom line from Galfer made anyway you want. DucShop and Ducati Seattle can order it for you.

Re: Question for those who have converted to radial calipers. (22350DK)

hi when i converted to radial calipers i ordered a line from spiegler, you can do it right online. i used 45 deg ends instead of 90deg because of how the caliper sits on the bracket it looks better,i took my old line and put it in place on the fender and checked the lenth to each caliper and to the master cyl ,i think i added a inch to each caliper and an inch to the master cyl, i got one in black kevlar,on the spiegler site u can choose a ton of fittings i got a T type line instead of a 2 line setup because of my brembo radial master cyl and the brake light switch.http://www.spieglerusa.com

Re: (Lyzic)

If you got a set of mounts on your forks w/ the 108mm spacing, just get a set of the 4-pad Tokico's from a ZX10R/6R/6RR or '03 GSXR 1000. They're awesome... especially when combined with a set of Galfer HH pads and radial master cylinders. As far as lines go, I put a set of the Galfer Superbike lines on (the ones w/ no banjo bolt at the caliper, just a straight thread-in fitting on the lower ends of the lines).

Re: (Lyzic)

Lysic,
I bought them new off of ebay as a package with the ohlins radial fork bottoms for the R&T's. They're the 100mm setup.

Rainman and Phil,
could you guy's post a picture of your line setup, with the fender in place (if you have one)

Thanks
Dave

anyone make braket conversions to use radial brakes, or do HAVE to get new fork bottoms? I'd love to bolt on some 4 pad tokicos.

Or you can just call Galfer and order it yourself.

Which forks have this spacing?

Re: (hubert)

I put a set of KYB's from a GSXR 1000 (2003 model) on my SS, they have 108mm spacing, as do most of the other forks for Japanese bikes w/ radial mounts. You can also get 108mm mount adaptors for the newer Ohlins forks w/ the bolt on brake mounts, or get complete fork bottoms w/ the 108mm mounting pattern.

When I was looking into the conversion I found adaptor plates for RC51 forks and a couple other bikes but not Ducs (unless you count the Cyclecat adaptors for the Ohlins forks). Or there is the fork bottom replacement route... $$$$$$$$... or, you can just replace your forks and get something w/ radial mounts already on them.

thats what I found as well. oh well. bummer, because you can pick up used tokico radial mount calipers for dirt.
