You do with the advanced brake packages they offer, when the hats are 330, or 343 mm, and they're using the 4 piston calipers to suit, but not with the standard 2 piston ones.

Some of the early VTs came with 15" rims so that would be minimum for the calipers.

Mounting holes are positioned different, there may also, (read that as highly probable that there's), a difference in disk thickness, e.g. your fronts are ventilated the rears are probably not.

The V8 ones are 28 spline,.. same as the VLT.

Only difference is the gears.

Same, but if you're gonna sell 'em, they're VL Turbo brakes, not VN-V8 brakes because chances are they'll fetch more that way ;)

Not sure what the SV90 ones are but the VN-V8 are just the same as VL turbo ones, nothing that special. Just ventilated/finned single piston calipers with 290mm rotors.

$1100 is more like a complete setup, center & axles.
