I Saw a NFE sage green AV with ambers about a week ago in front of advance auto parts.. anyone here?
 
Was there a smiling white fluffball pup on board, too?
 
I didnt see a "fluffball" on board.? Niles is just 5 min away from notre Dame so it might be from indiana.. not sure?
 
Hi, That was me in the Sage Green.  I live in Niles too, I see your GSXR in the parking lot of Advance Auto all the time (sharp bike).  I was just in and bought a couple of oil filters for my SV1000 Suzuki (Copper).  Seems like we both like Suzuki's and AV's  :cool:.  The next time I am in the store I will look you up!

Hope to see ya in the future don't be shy.

Thanks for the offer Matt.  I have been on this site and installed my ambers years ago and never saw another AV with them.  I guess I will have to keep my eyes open now  :beating:
 
:eek: We'll have to talk!? >:D

matthigh31...Do you have anything to do with the Advance Auto in Charlotte MI??
I see an AV at that store once in a while.
 
I havent been there no.  Most of the stores i work in are in Southern Michigan down to northern indiana.

Just put Drilled and slotted rotors on my AV,  with Bendix Ceramic pads.  Best brake pads made.. period.  Cost about $80-90 a set.. but best you will find.

Let me have my brakes checked out first but I'll probably take a complete set.

What kind/brand of rotors did you go with?

Did you paint the calipers while you had everything apart?

Got pic's?
 
I put on Bendix Zinc rotors so they dont rust..? I love them work awesome! i definalty can tell a difference.? Believe it or not i had to change the calipers at the same time.? The piston boot was all ripped, ended up taking about 6 hours & 34 beers to do all the calipers brake pad and rotors and painting.? i was ready to be done.? project including beer? (y) ended up being just pennies shy of $1350
