Corbin seat, Brembo Brakes?

Im looking for a Corbin seat in good or ok condition and Brembo brakes ( front and rear )with all the hardware. If anyone has these ( especially the seat cuz I dont want to buy new ) that would be amazing. Or if someone could point me in the correct direction! Thank you in advance.

I dunno about the Brembo brakes on an EX. The spacing between the caliper bolts is problematic as the sliding caliper on the EX has quite a large space between the bolts.

Brembos are not typically that widely spaced. You might come up with an adapter for a common sized set.....eBay is plum full of Ducati brake calipers.

You might find a single caliper and see what kind of spacing issues you have. Then take the bike to a machinist and see if they can make an adapter for you.

You see these all the time for Super Moto conversion for dirt bikes. You need one to move the caliper to the proper position but retain use of the upper bolt hole.

Alternatively, there are the Sumitomo calipers off of many Yamahas. They too are plentiful on eBay. There was a wider bolt spacing on the earlier YZF 600R than on the R6. Those *might* fit, plug and play.

Then there's the whole radial mount calipers which are not going to be of help in the least....unless you can have an adapter machined to fit them.

These are commercially available....but the bolt spacing is really the limiting factor. Hence, if you could have a machinist make one of the above, with the same bolt spacing as an EX brake, and the proper offset you could conceivably run a modern radial mount, 4 piston caliper. Just go easy on the brakes if you do ..........all I got on the brakes man..........sean
