Not meaning to hijack this mans thread, but why would you mount the caliber under the swing arm like that? To have the weight lower? Just seems like it would be more vulnerable to damage.
Just asking to learn, not to criticize or bash.

More vulnerable how?
It is no more likely to be impacted than a caliper mounted at the top.

Look at all the motoGP bikes and most top level factory SBKs. It's mounted below.
All the Italian brand superbikes mount them below.

1. It makes for easier tire changes. Since a hanging caliper won't fall into the wheel, since it's already hanging off the bottom of the swingarm.
The pros make a fixed bracket and it the wheel just slides out.

There is an argument that the moment of the brake torque force, from a caliper acting on the rotor, pushes the wheel down into the ground rather than up off the ground. The other side of that argument is that where the caliper is has no effects on the bike's dynamics when braking
I dunno, what's what, but the **** is sexy, and wheel removal is a lot easier when it's below the caliper rather than above.
