The KIY adapter isnt a direct fit but its nearly there, its need a bit of spacing out on the fork legs to get the caliper dead centre and a bit of meat taking off the lower leg to get the disc bolts to clear because you have to space the disc off the hub plus its all for a 320mm not 310 like you need steve.

You need either a 4 or 6 pot beringer to fit that mount of fork legs or a radial 4 pot to fit a radial mount.

If you buy a brembo and kevs bracket you'll be pulling your hair out again, trust me you will.

get your money back for the beringer and keep looking for another one ;)

How about a gold beringer 4-piston? Just the caliper, in good nick, bit of a scuff from spokes on the back - not unusual. Pads are almost new. £100 delivered.

Partial bollocks!!

There is no need to touch the forkleg!

Yes, the disc needs a spacer so the caliper clears the spokes... just like the standard KTM wheels and caliper on a 660/625 SMC with the same caliper, then the bracket needs final adjustment by using a couple of M10 plain washers until the caliper is central on the disc. But once set up its dead easy to remove and refit.

A 320 Braking disc and decent pads in a 4pad Brembo caliper on my bracket will give a very responsive brake with good feedback and no fade....plus you dont need to mess about deglazing the disc all the time like you do with a Beringer, they get really wooden if you dont treat them to a rub with 3M pad and brake cleaner from time to time ;)

LOL

kev thats what i had to do to get it to work with your bracket and 65mm brembo, i could have used different disc bolts that were shallower so they dont catch the botttom of the fork leg. Its was only a smidge but it did catch ;)

Nowhere near Derby! I'm based near surrey/hants/w. sussex border.
If it was me (and depending on whats wrong with it), I'd persevere with the 6 pot. Is it dodgy seals? Get the repair kit - real easy job to take the caliper apart and put back together (must be - I've done it!), then you know it's good for many hours/miles. They're absolutely blindin brakes when set up well - and with the right m/c, bit of a bitch to bleed though.
I haven't tried out my 4 pot - bought it to keep until I sell my bike, so I can bung that on and keep the 6 pot! Will let it go for the right money though.

My bike, button allen screws


Headsters bike, standard M6 bolts by the look of it


You have to trim the fork guard, but not the fork... unless you have a really wide disc spacer? I use about 4mm, maybe 6mm max.

Now if I can do that yeh!!!
Brembo's obviously as sharp as beringers but I guess there less trouble all round. But I need someone who has the right caliper and an adaptor, and pref someone to install it for me... I'm fed up with messin about with brakes at min
