Well, if you have been following along, I have an Ohlins rear shock, and I installed GP Suspension parts up front. Today I added 6 pot calipers. Man it is awesome stopping compared with the 4 pots. I need some new 6 pots for the SV now :devious, but Diana thought they were a bit harsh anyway. Maybe someday I will take a picture of it. :lol

I believe the steel braided lines does a lot of the feeling. Did you use the TLS cross-over brake line setup? I do have a set of tlr 6 potters and a busa mc. Time to work I think. :devious
Dunno if I should get me a set of steel braided lines first though.

Gerhard, the friggin forks rock! I am amazed, I get a significant change in damping for a 1/16 to 1/8 turn on the adjuster, very plush, like having a Penske up front. I have found my suspension valving source :hail GP Suspension :hail. Dave has been extremely helpful and answered every stupid question I had, some twice. He sent the wrong size spacer, but I cobbled one up and I have the correct new ones in my hand. Great folks and frankly, for $376.00 you cannot beat it. I have never had a set of forks so nicely set up, it is amazing. If I can ever get LE to send me the damn 800 pound spring I will be in business! Talk to them for me. Tell them Doug needs his TLS spring, they had to get Eibach to make one.

Forks are awesome! With the 6 pots, they rock, stoppies are us.

Zippy, it is never that simple. You need to drill the little pin, on the inside, then screw a screw in, heat it a bit (fork not the pin) and pry it out. One popped out perfectly and the other one required drilling it all out, ruining the stock pin. :banghead Those are compression adjusters. The rebound needle is buried deep in the cartridge.
