It would be way easier to use Buell fork legs, but I'm sure you can figure out spacing and whatnot... some of the Buell guys have used dual fronts by cutting the brake side off of one wheel and putting it on the other side. However, unless you're spending some time at the track... it's probably not worth it. Buell brakes work pretty well as-is, but do run into trouble under track conditions.I am toyying with the idea of putting a set of perimeter brakes on my oil burner, like a Buell set up but with a disc each side, not just the one disc, i will be using GSXR K5 forks, can anyone lend a bit of advise on this?
No, they never did. The idea was that it still has the same clamping power and surface area as 2 smaller brakes, so no need.I didnt think about them being radial legs, looks like i will be using Buell fork legs, does anyone know if Buell do a twin front disc set up? I have seen some pictures but cant find them now.
That was three years ago. I can't even remember what I was doing last Tuesday night. :doh:
I would have no chance then, i think i might just stick to the plain old K6 forks with the radial calipers, i refuse to run with 1 disc.In fairness when I said you can't do it, I was talking about the average guy. Not someone with access to the machines, programs and sheer mass of motorcycle parts you do
Why do you refuse to run only one rotor? Anyone who's ever ridden a Buell or a bike with a perimeter style brake will tell you it has just as much stopping power as a conventional setup.I would have no chance then, i think i might just stick to the plain old K6 forks with the radial calipers, i refuse to run with 1 disc.
