Disc brake conversion

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by kram, Dec 9, 2007.

  1. Does anyone have any idea how much it would cost to convert the drum brakes on a yamaha SR500 to disc?

  2. new rim 200$
    Rubber 100
    sproket 70
    spacers made 50

    That should be close
  3. Where did you find an SR 500 with drum brakes?
    You would need the wheel, disc, caliper, brake lines, master cylinder & the fork lowers/sliders with the caliper mounting lugs.
    Or are you talking about the rear wheel?
  4. You should be able to get away with it for nothing - here is a guy who wants to swap his disk brake on his SR500 for a drum:
