ok, on every pic of the 05's i've seen, they had the same Nissin rear caliper on the back that the 03-04's have. Now, on the front, they have Tokico calipers on the front.

Um, why are the pics like that? did the 05's actually ship that way? why couldn't they use the same manufacturer for the whole system?

:confused:

It's because of the Radial brakes on the 05s. The 1000RRs are set up the same way... Nissin in the back and Tokiko in the front. Not sure why they didn't just use Nissin all around, but you can get Nissin fronts if you prefer - and they're actually not that expensive.
