I have new calipers pad and rotors waiting at home so that sucks.

Bring out the brembo's bro. Its time. Them rotors from what I see have some grooving, looks warped to hell from where I can see the heat damage to them. Mine did almost the same thing at 132mph. I just had more pad left so no metal to metal. Love my r1's on it now tho.

Brembos go on next week bro. I am 500 miles from home right now so I just changed out the pads till I can get home and swap everything out. Pads were totally toasted!

A few people have asked this. I believe a few people have done similar things as the mesh grill mod and made their own to fit.

Just and 08 limited bumper. On my 05 I just did the upper and lower one with an old piece of mesh I had flying around but on my new baby I want to do it right. I'm looking on ebay for plastic grill mesh to closely match the top one
