I think you should remove them immediately,and be very grateful they haven't failed yet
totally unsafe design and probably material

Crazy!* If you've never tried stopping fast with just your rear brake, you should go do it one time, in a safe place. Back tires just slides and slides and slides ... Weeeeeeee

* unless you or somebody else is real sure about these brackets.

I agree with Simon. I wouldn't trust them to stop my chubby gal that weights 200kg going at 250km/h.....they will probably bent if not snap on you. Especially if you upgrade your m/c with a radial one.

If you take a look at most aftermarket pieces, they are solid billet, not a skeletal remains like you have....


Any one of you want to post up you aftermarket goodies to show the lad what I mean?

Take care.

Why would a radial m/c make any difference?
