    I ran into one of those deals you just can't pass up yesterday. The bike is basically new, he bought it as a carry over this winter and rode it twice. [​IMG]

    New front springs and replacement perches. 8" 275 lb/in. Had to get an inch shorter front springs so I can drop it like skrillex. Front rate will now be the same as the rear rate, too.

    '89 Kawasaki 650SX. Bone stock, well maintained, with a faded, fitted cover.

    Replacing almost the entire braking system.

    1 & 1/6" SVX Master Cylinder - $40 (mnsubaru)
    Single Diaphragm Brake Booster - $60 (nasioc)
    StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines - $125 (RallySportDirect)
    2002 WRX Front Caliper Brackets - $50 (RockAuto)
    2000 Legacy "H6" Rear Caliper Brackets - $40 (PartsGeek)
    Centric Premium Front Rotors (120.47018) - $100 (Amazon)
    Centric Premium Rear Rotors (120.47017) - $80 (Amazon)
    StopTech Street Performance Front Brake Pads - $40 (RockAuto)
    StopTech Street Performance Rear Brake Pads - $40 (RockAuto)
    Total - $575 :)

    Originally I was thinking of getting in on a frozen rotor group buy for some cryo-treated blanks and HPS pads, but that would've been twice as much $ for probably not much benefit. Hopefully I like the pads - they get good reviews for street and light track use. I'm sticking with my RS calipers to save money (and I think they'll be sufficient), and I already have a master cylinder brace.

    The single diaphragm booster is a shot in the dark. It's supposed to provide a linear amount of assist over the range of pedal travel, unlike the dual diaphragm that provides less assist at first and more as you bury it. I've always disliked how soft the pedal is and how far into it I have to go for a hard stop in my RS. The larger MC and different booster will hopefully give me a stiffer pedal that engages the brakes harder, sooner and needs less travel to reach lock-up. Ideally, I'd do the MC first, then try the booster - but I'm way too lazy so it's all going on at once.

    I'm excited. :uhhuh: I've had my RS for almost 4 years now and I'm finally getting finished with most of the mods. The only big one remaining now that I've tackled the suspension and brakes completely is power. Ever since we picked up our turbo'd Saab I'm just dying with this wimpy 2.5 NA. Even with intake, exhaust, phenolic spacers, and a reflash it's just soo tame. Cams could help but that money is probably better put towards a turbo kit or a swap. Just not sure when I'll be able to, or what way to go. The tranny I'm rocking is old as dirt, so getting a donor car is probably the smart move but lots of work.

    Yea, the trailer needs matching rims. Kinda hard to find those gold rota torques though. =( especially in that bolt pattern.

    Despite my reservation of buying a dirt cheap high resolution panel from some company in Korea on ebay I went for it. Paid $305 shipped from Korea. Shipped 4 days after order (ordered on a Friday) and 2 days in transit. Arrived with no damage to the box via DHL. Apparently these are the same LG panels as the Apple cinema display in a generic Shimian branded case. While they are not 1600 height a 27" 2560x1440 panel for $300 is hard to argue with. I have yet to find any dead pixels and have had no issues so far. You do need a dual link DVI cable and output on the video card. There are no other ports on it. This is the vendor I got mine from.
