    they will work with stock wheels and stock brakes with a simple adapter. no big deal.

    caution: the use of motorcycles may be habit forming. side effects include purchasing multiple examples of the same bike, in different states of tune, different years, or different models altogether. some motorcycles may be not running when purchased. some parts are no longer available. there are rare instances where aprilias are bought over the internet and upon arrival, they are not as were originally disclosed. there is a small group of people who cannot handle two stroke engines and motorcycle maintenance. if this is the case, you may not be a candidate for Aprilia RS250's.

    to go with the gsx-r600 brembos i went ahead and ordered a brembo rcs19. I am doing galfer gp-style 1 into 2 brake lines as well.

    does anyone have any experience with brake caliper anodizing / painted / nitriding / treatment?

    Is the simple adapter something you can buy or something you have to make for a stock MK2 wheel ? Those discs are really nice.

    i *think* i did gloss finish but i don't remember --- just checked the invoice and it was for " standard gloss finish"

    I think it will look good, because i'm going to have the bodywork gloss cleared after i put my decals on it.

    Oh Iím sure it will look amazing. I had a friend put a gloss set on his ZRX and itís wonderful. Also saw a matte set that came stock on a friends Superleggera and they were fantastic looking too.

    Hard to choose...but if you already have gloss carbon then that seems like a nice way to go.

    Can you weigh those bad boys and compare them to stock when they arrive? I think they could be the single best upgrade for the RS250 chassis...well besides the ÷hlins shock thing you figured out...and who knows what else!

    Thank you to the wonderful Lauren who puts up with me and my motorcycle habit, takes care of our house and dogs, and of course, sends photos of my wheels that arrive while I am out working.
