Post subject:  Back to White!

Many many years ago I got my 907ie , red with Bologna Registration mark, from a chap in Bologna who had it slightly modified.

Basically he had a small accident and while repainting it, he decided to change the wheels from white to metallic grey.

I kept the bike like that for some time , then the paint stated to blister and I though it was time for a new set of wheels.

Got one set in good condition, sandblasted and powdercoated in white, new bearings and a couple of hours to do the change.

In rthe meantime I also got a set of Exhausts in better condition than mine (I had the all black version)

and ...voila!!

Looks great. Just the front brake rotors to sort out...

Trying to find original silencers and air box inlet for my 93 907

I see your poiunt about the rotors, unfortunately Discacciati makes them in Red only (not sure if he ever changed to other options )

I still have the originals which were dreadful, not a nice braking and quite unbalanced; these are proper cast-iron rotors and are excellent.

Maybe one day I will get them sandblasted and reanodized in gold...

I did check and the 300mm (like mine) are not really easy to find in the old brembo Gold "pattern", there are a couple of companies that make them but are no where near the originals so there is no point in changing the Discacciatis I have on now which are great performers.

Yep, all 916 , Brembo GoldLine "serie Oro" to remain in the same years, so the modification although not original is something of that time and does not look out of place (for me at least)

The old MCs and calipers were dangerous (in particular the Mc) , braking hard was an adventure , the lever was always touching the throttle.

At first I though it was the brake fluid, then the Hoses, then i realized that the pump was not properly fabricated , whil tryoing to fix it i discovered that whenever you were putting pressure some of it was going back into the reservoir hence it was not really doing its job.

I then decided to fit the Serie Oro and never looked back, the best upgrade you can do to that bike.

Not so bad modifification :thumbup: Anyway, those original black coloured 4 piston Brembo's are very good and if compared to next generation "golden Brembo's" in my ST2 (2002 year) => i CANT find ANY diffrence in that "brake feeling". But surely also disc material means ALOT. As You know, they started to use more "stainless steel" material in "ST and 907IE-times", as they "dont look rusty after rain", but those were more slippery compared to cast iron (P750, P906) rotors. Best is cast iron rotors with black or golden Brembo's no matter they look little rusty after rain........... If rotors are wraped from too hot brakings, they have to change no matter how much friction surface is still left. Everybody do own choises! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
