VF1000 Front Calipers on NS400R

Post by ian wright »

I fitted some VF1000R front calipers (same as VF1000F) to an NS400R a while ago, the body and mounts are the same so fit straight on but the VF has bigger pistons with the same pads. The standard 400 front master cylinder worked well with plenty of feel and the bike stopped noticeably quicker.

Cheers Ian

I found the VF1000FE (and R) go noticeably quicker as well.

I've brought a set to try this upgrade when I get the bike back from HB 👍

Hi, can somebody measure the diameter of both NS and
VF1000 pistons to have an idea about the difference, please?
For those who have them disassembled on the bench and easy access to measure.

Thanks a lot! I could have checked this in the manual I am recognizing right now, sorry.
The VF1000 has 32,0mm vs 30,2mm from the NS.
