RC51 brake upgrade - anybody have pics

Hey guys,

Still a newbie to the Superhawk but I've recently got my revalved/sprung suspension back and have a set of RC51 brakes and master cylinder. Getting ready to do the required grinding on the RC51 brakes to make them fit but I'm a little nervous. Anybody have any tips or even better pictures of where/how you did grinding on your set? Thanks guys.

Here is an older post I found:

Basically just grind a bit away where it hits the lower caliper mount. You can also grind some off the mount (fork) too, and it is probably best to remove some off of each.

It really isn't much that you have to grind, especially if you do both the caliper and mount.

Put in the top bolt and it's fairly obvious where the ear of the lower bolt hits the body of the caliper making the bolt holes not line up... Grind the front part of the ear on the fork or the outtake on the caliper... I'd do the fork, but it's up to you...

+1 fork or just get a set of RC51 legs and be done with it
