Really liking what you've done so far with the front disk.

I'm contemplating something similar for my 360 cafe, but my engineering skills aren't as good as yours I suspect!

Is the ex500 disk the same diameter, so will work with the standard 360 caliper?

If so that looks like a great mod, either single or especially double!

Thanks Steve.  It really only takes removing the rivets (a grinder will do it), a punch to kick them out, a decent drill press to slightly open the holes, and a tap.

It'll take a special bracket for the calipers to fit a 360 front end, though.  The EX rotor is 20mm larger.  But since I converted the front end to CB750, I can use the stock CB750 calipers.  The 750 rotors are within a half cm of the EX. It takes very little effort to swap the front end.

Thanks for that useful info!

Next big job on the 360 is a front end upgrade, 33mm forks are way too flexible!

I believe the 750 front end fits, but is longer than the 450/550 so these are more suitable and still 35mm with the option for dual disks?
This combined with your ex rotors is my preferred option right now.
Do you know if the 450/550 have the larger or smaller rotors ?
Thanks for the advice!

I think they are 270mm.  You'd have to confirm.  They look the same and have the same bolt pattern as the 750.

Got the other disc done, so now we're dual up front. Sourcing the rear disc is harder than I thought, but I've managed to narrow one down to an NSR250rr/VFR400/RFV400. I have a range of 4 X 105 - 110 and those come in at 4 X 110.



Light mock ups ensue: This could be the first time I run a stock light in years...



But first we'll look at a Blaster jawn...



Looks like someone died a strange death...
