According to SwissStop, these are standard BP.
What pads are these that Nils gave you?
These two.ImageImage

Many thanks to Squashednuts for sending me this PYC Chain. Another item crossed off, two more to come.
Impressed with the weight, my KMC was 237g for the same amount of links. 116.Image

The Schmolke clamps arrived today along with another PYC Chain.
Great weight on the clamps, not so on the chain, 6.3g heavier than the other one.
Now just waiting on a Seat post clamp and saddle from Jure, then the build can commence.

Can't wait to see how clamps fit to ST-R9150.

Yeah I'm assuming the dremel will be used. My LBS mechanic has one standing by. Image

Off to the LBS Thursday morning for the re build, I'm going to watch, help, probably get it the way and hopefully learn a little to. The Extremes are mounted on my new AXs dry as I'm still undecided if I'm going to tape or glue, but at least it will give me some indication of overall weight. Another alteration will be to hide all the cables. As per usual still waiting on Jures parcel but these parts can be fitted at a later stage when they eventually arrive.
All I need now is to heal, get my confidence up and hit the road again.

Don't underestimate the "confidence up" portion. I crashed my Ducati at a speed I am embarrased to admit. Thanks to all the armored stuff I only came out with a bit of road rash in one leg. I sent the bike to get repaired with the intention of selling it since as a single parent that has no speed self control riding a motorcycle like that is as good of an idea as smoking bathed in gasoline at a fireworks store. Got it back, and while riding it home, I was extremely nervous and fearful. I am not one to live with unanswered questions or fears, so I hit 125 MPH for a few minutes and got cured of all that in about 2-3 min. Still sold it after a few months. My point is, the sooner you face your fears and things that make you uncomfortable the sooner you get over them and move on. “Life does begin at the end of your comfort zone”! Hope it helps a bit! :smartass:

13 months ago I ordered a Seat post clamp and sent back a warranty issue saddle and seat post. Got the seat post a few weeks ago, wrong saddle was sent, minus the clamp and I ordered another Lupina with the German flag on to match my Urgestalt. That was about 4 months ago. I was told it was sent on the 27th of August. Lucky I'm patient.
He has been very apologetic and generous by giving me some free goods, so all good. Not as if I can ride atm anyway. Lol.

Glad you were ok, sounds like it could have been alot worse.
It's a shame I ended up with these injurys as I would have liked to get back on the bike within weeks to overcome my fears. No such luck though. Maybe in a month I might feel ready.
