Time to push forward with some "tech" with the TR-1
After the superbike new front-emd and monoshock, it's time for the brakes ant the transmission.
So, at the front a 4 pot Brembo caliper, machined a bit and fully refurbished...
...with a 320mm floating brake rotor
Machined and spaced up to fit properly
At the back, once again, Brembo caliper and support from a Ducati Monster.
Ducati support is for a 245mm brake rotor... I needed to fit a 250mm.
So I had to "drop" it few millimiters down
Same spacing job, but this time I had to also change the bolt pattern
Then, with the fatter wheel at the back there were some interference problems between the chain and the tire... Also the original chain pitch was too big and heavy
So, for this I have to thank Kruger & Junginger that helped me with a custom made offset front sprocket to suit my needs.
A quick comparison between the two:
On the right the original and enormous one, on the left the new offset one in 520 pitch
All spaced and lined up
