Anyone ever put a rear disc brake on a 87 XR600? I would love to have one but dont know if it would be worth the time or money.... :)
Thanks,
Randy

If the linkage is set up like my 250(dual carb also) is compared to the single carb models, then it will take quite a bit of work. If it is the same as the later XR6's then it wont take much more than swapping the swingarm and a master cyl bracket I would think.

I think I will look for a cheap used clapped out 88 model and and see if it will work. I work in a multi line M/C shop and can get parts cheap. I want an extra set of wheels anyway.
Thanks,
