As a racer I would say yes, the KR-1 calipers are shite, but I don't see an issue for the road

Putting it on the track is different to racing though

Best production front end you could use would be an MKII Aprilia RS 250 IMO, or an SP VJ23 or 3XV, but they would be very rare.

Get a quote fro Maxton to revalve the forks. It might turn out cheaper and a lot less effort, in the long run. I had the forks on my NSR done and they are absolutely fantastic.

Maxton on http://www.maxtonsuspension.co.uk/

maxton is not that far from us, iv just never actually been in there, il go in and speak to them in person, obviously cost is the main concern as its all adding up, iv got loads of pics to put on here of my build, could someone run me through how i put them on again as i got one up ages ago an gave up as i was uploading with a dongle an it takes forever, got broadband now but carnt remember the how to, thanks.

The easiest way to upload pics is

Set up a photobucket account
Upload all your pics there
Either post a link to each pic on photobucket in the thread on the forum thread or
Om photobucket, use the "share links" IMG option (on the right of the image you want to copy) that copies the embedded URL so when you paste that link in the thread on here it brings the image across not just the url

Like I said easy !!!!

I would be interested in knowing what bikes and how many are running round Aintree. Would you give me a call or get in touch after your first race please.
