Are there any radial brake mount lowers for showas that I won't have to give my first born to get? Only one I have found are the billet lowers from motowheels for $999.
Not that big of a deal, just wondering.

Try a company called K TECH I know not where they are but there where working on radials for Showas some time last year, I believe thay may be being sold by Motowheels.


Cheers

Jager -

Please let us know when you find anything out - I am certain there are others like me on this board who are always interested in cool parts if they are quality and reasonably priced.

Re: Showa radial mount lower (spezjag)

I sure will. I think any brand is going to be expensive after I read a post by Alex when I did a search...

certainly nobody said they were cheap but machining fork bottom from billet is pretty complicated and takes many operations of loading and unloading plus the hours invested before the first one is sold. I refused to make these as they were just too difficult and would cost too much and simply wasn't any way around it.

Thx Ryan for the info about K-tech. Did some searching and they are a UK company. Google pulled up a website for them, it was dead. Found a lot of spring and valve kits from them at some bike shop sites.

Jager,

Here's another option for you, just follow this <FONT COLOR="blue">link</FONT>. UK again and one of the top Ducati independents this side of the pond.

One thing to note, in the pics on their website, for some reason they've shown the right side caliper bolted to the left side fork leg!
Whatever, the smooth side of the fork bottom is the side you see when they're on the bike. I've seen them in the flesh and they are simply awesome - a beautiful piece of machining!!!

Hope that helps, Neil.

Re: Showa radial mount lower (jager)

The motocorse unit is $1250, which is about what I was expecting since it is a nicely made unit. No go on the showa radials for under $1500(w/ the caliper) it looks like. Anyone want to try and machine down the 65mm bracket on the showa to look like the mount point of the ohlins R&T and then get some CC radial adpaters and see if the caliper lines up with the rotor.


I might check out the 8 piston Spieglers (probably just get a four pad brembo), http://www.spieglerusa.com/cfm/mc_ca.cfm, they look like they have some serious stopping power.

Re: Showa radial mount lower (jager)

A little off topic but...I was at computrack today and....while discussing frame alignment with the very competent tech. I said hello to the youngster ( 13?) assembling a set of forks!!! I asked him if "those bottom mounts were radial".He replied he had no idea but...He continued working.The boss noted he was "a neighbor".I think he was a prodigy.
