**Ti Rotor and Caliper bolts**

Got the replacement rotor and caliper bolts in black titanium. Black ti is the best thing since the wheel. Its a cool detail that most wont notice but I love it love it love it.

It's a pain putting the stock caliper back on if you use brake pads that have more surface area, which is pretty much anything other than OEM SBS or Brembo

Do you mean because of pad thickness?

No. Only with the added length because the caliper is so tall. Although it is easy if you reinsert the pistons every time you remove the calipers, but that means cleaning them thoroughly.

Top Most Aftermarket

Bottom OEM, SBS and Brembo

Just out of curiosity. Why'd you pick the OZ's over any of the other aftermarket wheel options?

They Certainty look awesome that's for sure.

Im a creature of habit like most of us. I usually go with marchesini and have done so with all my other bikes. So this time I wanted to do something a little different. After owning BST,Marchesini mags and alloy. These OZ wheels are on par quality wise and fit and finish.
And the poser in me likes the fact that these are on many WSBK bikes
Hope this helps.

Did you install the discs with gaskets?

Curious as I noticed Brembo doesn't have the grooves inside like the stock discs to accommodate them.

I'm referring to these:
