if anyone wants a badass light weight rear brake disc for the R-1 rim,yana shiki makes one for about for $90.00-$100.00 . i ordered it from MOTOSPORT,also BILLET CYCLES have them.there are cheaper ones to be found on ebay from china that look & work good but then there will be a long wait to receive it.

here is my front finally installed (lack of time with a newborn at the house, im not complaining cause i love it), had to space the front rotor out like shorttrack has posted up on the other thread on this, and for an update for everyone that with the gen 2 busa w/radial mount brakes you got to run a 09-11 R1 rotor up front.... I got a 09-11 r1 front rotor w/mounting bolts for the gen2 for sale in garage section and also got an 07-08 r1 front rotor for the gen1 for sale in the garage section....

I did mine and it was expensive. But as long as your going for mostly cosmetic difference it's worth it. The weight savings was minimal at best!
