RD400 Build





I got a  new buffing setup for the speed lab. A lot of parts on this build will be polished so it was a necessary addition. I pulled the front caliper apart and it looks decent. Some pitting on the pistons but not too bad. I should be able to clean them up. I was surprised at how heavy the calipers were. I'd love to replace them with some lighter units. I have some stock FZR calipers but don't know if they'll clear the wheels. I'll have to pull one disc off my FZR and see how everything fits up. Anyone know of any vintage race calipers that might be much lighter and work for this application? (and not cost me $400)?
