Maybe you're the idiot. I'm not replacing perfectly good parts, at least not this year
Yea maybe winter time when the season is over I might get mine replaced but definitely not at the start of the season. My buddy’s bike has been there for 3 weeks now. Told him to keep waiting it out since it’s already there and before the weather gets real nice

Just got my Hayes calipers replaced with the Nissin calipers, brake lever, MC, and brake pads...all Nissin. Unfortunately, the Vesrah brake pads that worked before no longer work. Does anyone know what race brake pads will fit the new Nissin calipers? Below are pictures of the Nissin brake pad and calipers, labeled BMW.

Suggest listening from 15:00 about Hayes and other Jap calipers.
He basically says that the K67 OEM Hayes calipers are a significant upgrade over the old Brembo, and the Nissin (M1000RR and recall replacement) are yet another upgrade.

BTW, I'm still getting used to the extra sensitivity of the Nissins. They thankfully don't have that binary bite of the old Brembo and feel very progressive, but they require far less finger pressure for any given level of braking.

Nissin that you got as recall replacement and Nissin on M1000rr are different calipers.

Are you sure? They appear the same other than the color. And you cannot tell by the part number because the recall part number is different than the normal one even when the same part.
