This is used to hold the brake caliper on the back of an R6 during rear wheel changes. It is a bear to change rear wheels on an R6. This makes it much easier.

Something similar would be appreciated for the RSV4. What a pig to change a rear.

I bought one when I bought my R6, only to find out that the previous owner had the brake caliper bracket welded to the chain adjuster, so it wasn't needed. I sold it.

You could put the axle in from the right side, and leave it in far enough to hold the brake caliper bracket in place...

That's what I do. I reversed the direction of the axle from original. It works pretty well. Spread the pads in the caliper as much as possible of course too.

Oh yeah, that reminds me.. Metric Mike also suggested to bevel the edges of the pads so the rotor will slip in more easily.

I never thought of that! I will try it out.
