RC51 rear caliper work on the 919?

Hi guys, I got 2 gold front calipers for my 919... but there does not seem to be any gold rears on ebay. Will a RC51 rear bolt up?

If you have a black one to trade for gold I'm sure you'll find a taker here, post it up.

black is cool .. gold is.. um.. "alternative life style"?



Not trying to offend anyone.. gold fans or alternative life style folks. just set it up too good for me to pass it up.




They are the same... just different colors. I think Honda went all "bling" on the 9er in hopes it would sell better in the states... what? the chrome meters came on in 2004 and the guilding is circa 2005?

The F4i uses the same rear caliper. Be careful, I bought two off of Ebay and both had striped bolt holes. I guess that is common problem.
I'm still looking for a black rear, let me know if you want to part with it.

The gold 2003 cbr600rr rear caliper should bolt right on, i know the mounting points are the same. If memory serves me right the only differance is the brake line mounting point is at a little differant angle. if i get time tomorrow i will have a look at the ones i have and take a picture.
