I finally got around to finishing the conversion to a matching Brembo rear brake on the 850 test mule. It wasn't too difficult after I figured out what parts I needed. It is essentially a Ducati 900SS CR item, although Monster and ST units of certain vintage will work also. It took a minimum of machining and fabricating a disc adaptor plate from 3/16 6061 aluminum. The purists won't like the five bolt pattern hub to six bolt pattern disc mismatch, but when mounted is not very noticeable. It must take a good 3 pounds of unsprung weight off the swingarm.
