Now you're thinkin'! That shouldn't take me too long, right?

You have to be incredibly fast just to use those brakes to get them hot enough. I'd have no use for them at all. It's funny when moto journalists take the bikes for test rides after the season's over with and can't get the brakes up to temp... most of them get the brakes changed out to the iron rotors just so they can stop the bike effectively!

Yep, takes a very hard braker to even begin to use those.

But your poser points would be off the hizzy!

Tom,
Unless your last name got changed to "Stoner" it ain't happening.
Heck I know I can't get the carbon discs, and the forks would take a LOT of convincing and money.

John would have to let you know about the tires, (MotoGP one off specials) but I kind of doubt that too.


Besides, what would you put them on?

Or would you just put them in the living room as "art".

You'll need to get a custom 16" wheel made for the rear and a 16.5" front.
The tires are about $1500/set and they are custom built for each track. All the racers get the same specification with a choice of compounds. The tires are not custom built for each bike, but for each track. So when Stoner beat Rossi, he knows he was beaten by a better rider/bike package....not a "special" tire. Pedrosa, was just screwed....lol
