Re: Brakes

There's plenty of information here. It just takes some work to get to it. Use the search function. Start with "rear disk" and start reading posts.

Re: Brakes

Here's a tid bit to get you started. I've used the import caliper / rotor described by BurnedBronco on my Scout D44 rear. I recently had some issues with the master cylinder, but got things working again. Very nice setup! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
