GITech wrote:Hi Luke,
You posted a link to dirt/pocket bike brakes and it's got me interested. Can you give us more info and maybe some closeup pics of how you fit them up?
A few questions:
- Can you use regular bike rotors, or..?
- Did you have to make custom mounts/adaptors?
- Good for front? = http://www.partsforscooters.com/Hydraul ... gory=77226
- Good for rear? = http://www.partsforscooters.com/Rear-Hy ... gory=77225
BTW I'm thinking of using these rotors, at least for the front, (I have fox-40's): http://220.127.116.11/detail/17757-115_H ... dapter.htm
Any thoughts you have on this would be greatly appreciated.

So bike rotors will not work, ie too thin?
Have you (ever) used the calipers in the links posted?
Nice mod BTW!

My ticket price to get here was around $10,000usd in parts turned to smoke. That includes ~$2,000usd in wasting my time with. . .a couple of minutes of my riding. Then going to bigger ebike controllers, of which, the only ones I never killed were . . . beyond there limits. Smoked a number of motors that cost - - -5lbs motors to 15lbs motors to 25lbs motors, each time finding - - - it just ends in fickle designs that constantly break and smoke.
In the end, the simplicity and durability is just worth it to carry an extra 10-15lbs of motor around.

I've had 2 nibbles all ready, but since I'm giving away $9,500 of the $15,000 asking price to other well deserving folks, I'm not really willing to compromise on the price, and I'm not in any hurry to sell her, because I don't know that I've ever owned a vehicle that puts a bigger eat-to-ear smile across my face and leaves me white-knuckled and shaking after every ride.

I'm quite sure the number is all of them
