    I have an early model and fitted new (standard size) discs and MT09 calipers but my son made me some spacers to allow fitment

    The front bracket we sell can be modified for the rear fitment. I haven't gotten around to making them specific for the task so you'd have to cut and grind one of them to fit. The rear usually have plenty of power and don't need much more. I have kits to fit the stock on to large rotors. I have brake caliper mounts to fit the R1 4 piston on stock or larger rotors as well.
    If you do the Busa on the rear you also need a little longer line which I also keep on hand.

    I have 2000 Vmax, it is sense to upgrade brakes? I have all ready 4 spot calipers, but I'm thinking about 6 pot sumitomo from fzr1000.

    They do function better wit more pad surface and piston volume for more power and feel. It will have more lever travel though so keep that in mind. I do have some good used pairs on hand or you can source your own. Email me at one2dmax@aol.com

    Can I swap my 85 calipers for a 2004 Yamaha vmax calipers. Will the calipers on a 2004 fit on the 1985 vmax?

    No they wont. The spacing on the calipers is different.

    Did you read the earlier posts in this thread? I think not, as this has already been answered.
