    Default Cant find brake upgrade parts.

    Am going a little bit crazy.

    I'm looking to upgrade the brakes on my sri 150, but I cant find what bits to get and where to get them.

    Ideally I'd have larger calipers and discs on the front and just grooved discs and proper pads on the rear.

    Anybody with ideas on what my options are?

    Thanks.

    I know that the 315mm conversion with a good disc and decent pads all round (Pagid RS4-2'blue's or EBC yellows) is adequate for me on trackdays!
    The 350mm with 4 or 6 pots for >£1500 look better, and i am sure will ultimately be better.
    i got mine from LMF but www.brakes4u.co.uk were close.
    Change the brake hoses whatever.

    more...............I have just checked and unfortunately the Pagids are not available for the Vec C.
    The bedding in instructions are interesting::


    Geometric Alignment Of Pad Surface To Disc Surface (basic bedding in)

    4-6 brake applications with medium pedal pressure from approx 90mph to 50mph, not allowing wheels to lock. (No brake dragging)

    Allow for a distance of 300 - 400metres between brake applications for cooling period.

    Pads should not reach temperatures above 400°C during initial bedding in. Check that pad
    surfaces have at least 80% contact with disc before allowing more heat into pad surface.

    Immediately followed by :

    Bedding In At High Speed

    1 brake application with medium to high pedal pressure from approx 110mph to 50mph
    without allowing wheels to lock.

    Allow 3-4 recovery brake applications with light pedal pressure.

    Repeat high speed applications including recovery applications another 2-3 times.

    Allow a cooling off distance of 500 metres between high speed applications.

    Looks like I have a bit of cleaning ahead of me..



    Was considering going with blue calipers, just cause its nice, but then it occoured to me that thats the colour of the vxr/opc ones...so am having 2nd thoughts..

    How about gold..it'd be differnt..
