A year ago I went down the path of de-linking my VFR brake system. The front brakes were pretty straight forward using the VTR setup. However, in the rear, it was a bit more involved. I didn't want to use the OEM caliper and modify it. So, I designed an adapter that mounts on the existing hanger to mount a standard Brembo P32 caliper. If you are planning to de-link your VFR800, 5th gen, this is a good solution for the rear brake. It gets rid of the large OEM caliper. This adapter bolts on to the stock hanger and will mount a Brembo P32 caliper in the same OEM underslung position.

First was removing linked brakes, adding a crossover line to the stock rear caliper and swapping out stock '99 master for a 14mm RC51 master. Last year I got an adapter to fit a Ducati 2 piston caliper and kept the 14mm master. Turns out the 34mm rear caliper from an '08 1098 S is using an 11mm master cylinder. Stopping power isn't great, but I don't really use it much. Nice to hold it on a hill and release the fronts. I'm using the pads that came with the caliper, I have no idea what they are. I jus
Everything was going along so well. Slow going, but well enough. After getting my wheels back on the bike I got to try out my lower blocks I installed. The gear shift and brake really needed to be adjusted. Shifting arm of course was a piece of cake. I lowered the brake pedal as low as I could and of course it wasn't far enough. So I go back to VeeferCanuk's thread here:http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.php/topic/34097-bls-footpeg-block-install/?p=408490 The part specifically that started this whole damnedable mess was trying to figure out how to take off the nut that Veefer circled i
