    This morning on the way home from dropping my son at school i spotted some shelfs on the side of the road put out for hard rubbish.
    I pulled over to have alook as i need some for the shed.
    They looked alright so i loaded them into my car, i went back and had a look at what else was there and i spotted a caliper under an old bean bag so i pulled it out.
    It had a brake hose on it and on the other end it had another caliper and the hose that runs up to the master.
    There was also a broken fork leg there too, so i grabbed them.

    Did a bit of googling to work out what they're off and i reckon they come off a 2008 -2011 CBR600RR ?
    They have 108mm mount spacing and a 22mm offset., disc pads are about 50% worn.

    Are the CBR's front brakes that bad that you'd just chuck them out??

    Single USD fork legs usually go cheap on eBay.
    Project USD forks for FZR :)
    But CBR600 discs are going to be way overkill for the little bike.
    Maybe one disc would be okay.
