Just an easter egg that I see, there Allan. Your caliper has been taken apart at some point and/or has had bolts fall out. There is one OEM "Star" bolt still there, then the rest are allen heads. Just FYI in case you need to rebuild it in the future. I've replaced all my Star bolts with stainless allen heads, that I then polished. (y)

Ahhhhh, very good Allan. The VFR one I believe was steel, the Blackbird one in your pic is aluminum.

I would go with the Blackbird one (y)

Big program for you and something I am very envious of, especially living so close to two circuits.

You think you'll be 'allowed out' in early May? Obviously I hope we all are, it has to end at sometime, but I think there will be a gradual reduction of the lockdown that might still prohibit large gatherings. Well, UK and USA at least.

Every Track day is still on. They call it Traffic exercise so as long as we have same restrictions as today we will ride.
hopefully everything will work good. Races and race training is cancelled just if someone crash and need hospital care.

This week i put in a order for following parts below from David Silver spareparts.
I will also put in a order for a new front and back tire since i have some Track Days booked so i have all things i want to replace when tires are warn out.
All is Honda original parts except for Cush drive rubber set.
If you build a bike like this i think original chain and sprockets will work for Track days.
I am looking on Michelin for new tires.
Anyone that does some Track days what are you using?

Order information
1 x 9501215001 - Battery retaining strap
1 x 06410MCF000P - Cush drive rubber set
1 x 06406MCJ751 - Drive chain and sprocket kit
1 x 90037422003 - Front drive sprocket retaining bolt

I went a little crazy on my 99 track build. Dunlop Q3+’s, DID ERV3 520 chain, JT sprockets. It’s all overkill for my poor ability, but it sure does look awesome ?? View attachment 107219
Does Q in Dunlop tires stands for qualifiers?
