    Gang: a few years ago i'm sure i saw somewhere somebody talking about how the 1100 oilhead Brembo caliper will bolt up as-is to the G/S fork bosses.

    Only mod needed (i think) was to machine some smidge of material off the caliper bosses

    Solo Lobo's big caliper thread mentions these Brembos for 100GS applications, but does anybody remember the G/S thread with the same 1100 caliper?

    great improvement and if you buy the caliper right it's a good upgrade.

    DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCED SPLIT THE CALIPER...you've been warned!!
