I bid on them, went higher than I wanted to pay since I am looking at a possible RC51 front end swap.

Rossi uses 4-piston calipers. He also either has all his fingers on the brake lever, or all on the throttle. I watch that stuff. See the DVD: The Doctor, the Tornado & the Kentucky Kid.

And a good number of owners of older GSX-R (the wource of the 6-pods) used to switch to 4-piston Nissins (like the RC/F4i/.... use) as an upgrade. Draw your own conclusions......
