much drama but sourcing the caliper adapter is the difficult part.
I had found a few sources last time I looked into it but don't remember where I saw
them. I think there were a few on Ebay, maybe try there...

Sorry to hijack but are there any 310/320mm disk kits actually available for the WR?

I also use the Tusk 270mm set up for dirt and it is way better than the stock front brake.

People that have the 270mm, can stoppies happen with this kit? Strong enough?
Hardly but almost maybe? Definitely not like a supermoto set up. With the Barringer it's a one finger.

Both of my supermotos have Braking 320mm rotors, Braking 4pot calipers, Brembo radial masters (one 16x18, the other 15RCS... I think, I'd have to double check) and they work great. Then again, it's probably a grand in brakes on each bike if you buy new.
Rather than adapting DRZ stuff, I'd go with a kit intended to fit a WR. They aren't that expensive and should bolt up.

I've ridden a few supermotos that use relocated stock caliper and have never had trouble lifting the rear. I've even been able to do it with a stock size rotor. Obviously they don't have the feel or heat capacity that the 320/4pot I'm running now does, though.

With the 320 and caliper relocation bracket, it's a major pain in the ass because the caliper is almost touching the rim, so when you need to take the wheel off you need to get creative. I've only been able to take mine off by unbolting the rotor everytime..some say take the inside pad out.
this is an EBC 320 supermoto contour kit on my 15' Wr. It's about $170

You've had to unbolt the rotor? Wow. I just pull the caliper on mine, and I would've expected a 4pot to be bulkier. Just about every sportbike you have to pull calipers on some I'm used to it and didn't think twice.
