I would think if you have a complete front S1K BST w/s1k rotors it would mount up to the HP4. I hope to find out soon.
I have BST's on my 2012 and plan on putting them on my HP4. I hope it works with the HP4's rotors but if not, I'll use my Galfer wave rotors and offer the HP4 rotors for sale.

Not trying to fake it. Just like the color. It suits the bike!

I don't understand. If you want a competition then wait for one, no? Sounds like your going to have buyers remorse for not getting the comp, and if you put a deposit on both then isn't your option still open for the comp?

I did have the comp on order, but was 4th in the queue. They only got 2. So I could wait and risk it, or bird in the hand!! The only thing I like from the comp are the wheels. Don't care about the carbon.

Are the rims on the hp4 standard gloss black or flat? They seem flat in the pics.

It is flat but not sure if the PDI does anything to them.
