Prior to my purchase of the V I was riding a Suzuki V-Strom. One of the performance upgrades I performed to the V-Strom was a front brake caliper upgrade using readily available 4 piston Tokico calipers and a bracket kit designed and manufactured by SV Racing Parts.
I was thinking that this would be an upgrade to do to the V but I was unable to find the bracket kit so I contacted Blair Layton at SV concerning a bracket kit. Below is my inquiry and his response:
Have you ever considered developing a front brake caliper adapter kit for
the Kawasaki Versys for the same calipers that can be used with the V-Strom
kits. I have been unable to find a source for a kit to fit the Versys.
IMHO the Versys has the same brake performance as the stock V-Strom brakes and a caliper upgrade would be a definite plus.
I installed one of your kits on my '09 Wee and was quite impressed with the
upgrade. The brake upgrade improved the front brakes from merely adequate to excellent 2 finger braking. Unfortunately the Wee was totaled in a collision
this past October.
Hi Bob, That is a project that I hope to get done this coming riding season,
I will be posting up when they are available,
Thank you for all your support, I appreciate it.
Let me know whenever you want any performance parts for your bikes, like
Chain and Sprocket Combinations, Galfer lifetime guaranteed SS Brake Lines
or their superb brake pads for example,
Enjoy the ride, and best regards,

If anyone else is interested in a bracket kit I would suggest contacting him to show your interest.
