Thanks. That's awesome. The rest of it (minus the motor) is here... http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=66202.0 The motor is going into a kart after I rebuild the top end.adventurco said:Glad you're bringing it back, I got a little sad when I read you tore that little guy apart. That bike is half the reason I now have an XL ;D
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.Sderbyshire said: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!

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.
I think they are 270mm. You'd have to confirm. They look the same and have the same bolt pattern as the 750.Sderbyshire said: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?
Do you know if the 450/550 have the larger or smaller rotors ?
