Busa Rear Brake Caliper...

Has anyone ever seen or heard of a Busa with the rear caliper fliped up top? If you have, what was the process and the pros and cons? Currently I have a rear swingarm stand and all that mess on the bottom becomes a pain in the when flipping the rear up on the stand:BangHead: . Yes I am being too cheap to buy another stand.

Nothing serious, just when I go to put it on the stand sometimes the stand cathes the rear caliper support bracket or the brakeline. Just would like to flip that on top giving the swing arm more accessablity.

Are you using a spooled stand or a standard?
To flip it you'd have to rework the brake stay arm. Other than that it wouldn't effect it in any negative manner.

Yeah that can be a pain in the at times.
FWIW, it's probably cheaper to sell your stand and replace it with a spooled one than to modify the bike.
If it's a Pitbull you can just buy the bolt on tops to convert it to a spooled stand.

I have used the spool stands and they are pretty sweet, I am just trying not have to buy another stand. I had fabricated tabs to catch on the spools (yes I actualy have rear spools), but not sure if it is the angle of the stand or the weight of the Busa, but the tabs just spin, no matter how tight I torque it.

I got the stands (front and rear)on e-bay for a good deal ($115.00 deliverd for the set). Or so I thoughtit was a good deal, now I know why. Other wise I would have bought the Pits set up for spools....

Thanks for all the assistance. Even thought I could do all the prep work to remount and reweld it myself...I don't want to have to go through all that. Sounds like it will be cheaper to get another stand... yes another toy for the Busa:icon_bigg
