they're adapter plates for mounting a radial brake caliper to the conventional brake mounts of the rc51 forks.


and radial calipers are commonly referred to radial brakes. i don't know of any other radial brake system out there for motorcycles...unless you're talking about a radial master cylinder, which most new sportbikes, and all racebikes are using as well.

rc51 doesn't really need radial set up. factory brakes with HRC pads are wonderful as it sits. rc's are getting so cheap now days it is worth picking one up. as for crashing.... they do just fine if you get thorstens frame slider and not the "traditional" sliders. traditional ones sit too low on the body and tend to make to bike flip. thorstens sliders sit high just behind the rads and protects them and less chance of them digging in and flipping the bike.

that KTM is saweeet!

My Rc was one of the most enjoyable bikes I ever owned.
Stable as rock. It's only hinderance was it's weight(which probably contributed to it's stability).

I wish honda would build something new to compete with the ducati twins like the RC did back in it's day.
