we didn't take  but a few mm off the edge not like a lot of people tend to do and angle the whole damn pad... then I could absolutely see failing them from tech. Our Chamfering of the pad does not effect the performance of the rear brake at all.

EDIT: I realize in that picture it really seems that the pad is  shaved completely  at an angle, it is not

Is that just to make wheel changes quicker?  I've not seen that before, but I've also never looked for it...

yes Chris, chamfering the pads is 100% to make wheel changes faster having a captive rear caliper. plus the pads  makes rear wheel changes significantly faster.   basically it takes 3 things / safety wire to hold the  inner pad in place /  captive spacers to hold the  rear spacers in place so they don't pop out at the slightest bump /  chamfered pads to allow the rear rotor to  slide up easily so that a square surface doesn't snag on the square surface of the pads!


i'm certain everyone here has experienced the frustration of getting the rear rotor to line up straight and up into the pad/caliper recess.

Lets build some powa! What is done with the engine build is determined buy the rules your competing under, level of maintenance you want to perform and of corse your budget. From stock, superstock, supersport, superbike and beyond. Combustion engines are an air pump so their ability to breath is everything. Milling the gasket surface allows us to tune the combustion chamber size and compression ratio. CNC valve job gives us a clean and consistent radius for optimal air flow past the valve seats. CNC porting forms IN/EX ports for optimal flow that is 100% repeatable from head to head. The unsung hero of a good breathing engine is properly evenly set up valve clearances.

      If you're looking to upgrade your Yamaha YZF-R6V 2006-17's exhaust, look no further than the Yoshimura Alpha T Titanium Full System. The Alpha T utilizes a tapered conical sleeve that produces a higher "GP" tone than the Alpha.

      This exhaust features Yoshimura's new Works Finish. Works Finish takes on a unique coloring after it goes through a heat cycle on the motorcycle. Some of the benefits of Works Finish include:


      Contemporary satin/matte finish



      Uniform heat coloration


      Increased fatigue strength


      Increased scratch and stain resistance


      Compared to the stock exhaust, the Alpha T reduces the weight of your bike by over 13 pounds while increasing its performance.

      Constructed from carbon fiber and titanium, the Alpha T is sure to enhance the look of your bike.
      MSRP $1,999.00

      Note: this exhaust is designed and intended for closed course competition use only.
