Yep, drum is fine for a rear brake and looks fine too me as well. Don't make a ton of extra work for yourself you really don't need.

Shit. As soon as I finished that post, realized I have a 750f roller in my barn.
I need me a barn like that.

Itís like having a crack dealer living next door.

I got some rubber installed on the front wheel to get a true account of my stance.

It's got the look.  Looks like each Cafe you race to will need to be a gas station too. ;)

What d'you mean?  It holds 9 gallons.  How much gas do these 550's use up?

Shit the GL1000 only has an 5 gal tank and gets 200 miles out of a tank, the 550 should get more than that between fills with 9!
