Just fitted brand new r1m calipers.
You need to remove the alloy shims from the forks then to get them 100% you need to fit 1.3mm spacers under them. They will work without but i wanted them to match 100% with my discs.
I havnt fitted braided lines yet as i was just testing the setup.

I saw a track bike ZX10r setup with these recently, the owner claims they work quite well.
Yes i can confirm they work well. Not sure how they work on track yet but so far so good.
I just prefer the looks and build quality of yam stuff over standard tokico ones

Bike looks slik ukzx!it looks intimidating just sitting.
Cheers. I do have a gen5 bodykit for it but im not sure if im gonna fit it or not.
Might just fit the tail end.
But i have a crazy idea to fit the gen5 but keep anniversary paint scheme

Little update. Calipers work well. Id say the r1m pads are slightly racier compound as they have to be warmed up before they work unlike standard zx10r pads. But at high speed they work great

Another update.
On track the brakes were the best ive ever used.
Absolutely zero fade for the first time in my life!
Even on standard pads.
They didnt throw pistons back when i was having head shakes and seemed to egg me on to brake later.
