This my rear brake set up from the UK.

L74 do some nice quick release kits using Lightech chain adjusters.

Why do they opt for an upside down caliper? Don't you want a slight angle for bleeding and air bubbles?

When in doubt... send it!

Underslung calipers are make for faster wheel changes and the caliper is pulled rather than pushed when under tension. There are mechanical advantages and it has nothing to do with bubbles and bleeding. There shouldn't be any air in there to generate bubbles anyway.

Also, the rear caliper is useless when the rear wheel is in the air! Go ahead and put one of them fancy Brembos on the rear and stomp on it! Or, just properly use the front brake and forget about the rear altogether.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I really just did it for tire changes. I was using the Fast Franks caliper holder with stock caliper but the caliper was getting caught up on the rear wheel trying to remove it, scratching the rim constantly. This Brembo caliper is the cheapy one thats on comes stock on the RSV4RR. Nothing fancy like the billet calipers that are $900. But I do use the rear brake to change my lines track riding and racing.

GEN 5!!!

i really didnt secure it with anything other than it clipped to the rear wheel speed sensor. I used a Spiegler Non-ABS rear line and just reversed the line from how normal installation is. The banjo on the caliper now has a slight pitch away from the wheel and is perfect length.
