Project Bike: Dad's XT500 - Exhaust header & rear brake caliper

More new parts! My exhaust header came in this week. It's a Hoos Racing 1-3/4" stainless low pipe.

I sourced out a better rear brake caliper to fit my rear brake setup. Its a Brembo unit that came stock on a number of Ducatis. I got this one of a friend (AJ) that I race flat track with who is also into road racing Ducatis. I think I'll eventually paint the caliper black and keep the Brembo logo polished aluminum.
