Not much point in breaking another bike for the amount of parts I sell.

I was gonna "do" the back end, 650 swingarm, shock, axle... not the wheel because you can't get Pirelli Angel GTs for the GT650 wheel but they make them in GT125 sizes, and as we saw here the GT125 tyre doesn't get to the edge before things scrape anyway. The only reason for the wider wheel is butch looks, and the ability to get a bit more power down, the former is largely irrelevant and the latter is negated by being able to get better tyres for the smaller wheel.

But my new sprockets haven't turned up yet, so I "done" the front instead.

Got these in, alongside twin discs. Braided lines and GT650 brake MC. No idea if it'll work as yet since it's not hooked up.

Why get Angels when you can get the diablo rosso? ...or better yet, admit your deep, dark desire to hug the michelin man!

I like the Diablo Rosso II front and the Angel GT rear, so that the tail lets go first and I can do something about it. If the front goes first, the only thing I can do about it is die horribly. When I was looking into the 650 wheels option, well over a year ago, GT650 sizes were not available.

Actually the only reason I ended up with a Diablo front and Angel rear is because I couldn't get either a Diablo rear or an Angel front. But the setup is incredible. Wouldn't have anything else now, unless I didn't have the choice.


What affect would putting GT650 wheels on have in cornering?

Unsprung weight would go up, which isn't good.

Contact patch for rear wheel would improve, so you never need to worry about wheel spin exiting a corner.  ;D

Would look porn.

Just bled the brakes.

Didn't think it was gonna be any good with the amount of lever travel. There's no way I can do the two-fingers thing like a moto-X or stunt rider, because my other two talons would get in the way. Seems like a lot of braking "dead space" but when it does get to the end of the travel, the brakes have enough power to lock the wheel, and the wheel has enough grip to rip a groove into the dusty concrete surface of the garage floor.

Not road-tested yet so I'm not sure how feely the brakes are going to be. If I don't let you know otherwise, you can reasonably assume the brakes don't have much feel or feedback, and that I've gone over the handlebars and face-planted a wall.

No crash!
Brakes are as mild or as fierce as I want them to be. Lots of lever travel means I have a wider control area.

I'm stoked that it all works.
