    Ktech springs

    The springs are hung on a wire when powdercoated, the mark is usually touched up after. can you not just turn the spring so it cant be seen

    What’s your opinion on brake pads?

    Carbon based for dry (sbs, bendix, pfc) and sintered for wet, carbon based pads never really recover 100% after getting soaked

    Quick Change rear wheel blocks

    The only thing i dont like about the modified lightech setup is the way they clamp on the back of the arm inside, this get in the way on some bikes, moreso with captive spacers making then not so quick release, i've modified a few by cutting the blocks down and tapping into the end of the swingarm

    Cat you legally race a Cat B salvage bike

    I was always told cat a and b were break only, Alawys had to cut the headstock off and return it to my breakers on ones i've bought else they got in trouble if the frame was found to still be in circulation

    Best aftermarket wheel bearings?

    B&C express are cheap for bearings, they carry bike specific sizes and dont over spec them unlike a bearing trader

    Or just put a spring on the caliper pin between the pads

    Matris suspension

    Matris stuff is very good and well made, but very little support, any issues and stuff has to go back to the factory. Not played with the Nitron cartridges yet, but had a look at them inside and out, well made

    Power commander interchangeability

    It'll probably fit, provided tps is wired the same (assuming its a straight to injector and not a multi plug) but the fuel table wont have enough rpm for the 600

    Brembo brake discs 0mm offset 320mm

    Personally i'd do it in the bike instead of maths, bolt the calipers on with spindle in and measure c-c, get the wheel central and get face to caliper bracket figures. it allows for aftermarket part bolted to aftermarket part tolerance

    Brembo brake discs 0mm offset 320mm

    Trouble is everything brembo in the uk goes back through Mode, so unless someones got something in stock the wait will be the same
