I have all the parts, they sent me the wrong spindles so I should have it completed next week.
Aaron, I was hoping you'd post up, thanks. It looks like you've been busy since you started this conversion a few months back. I was just getting ready to order the parts and decided to check the posts one last time. Please keep us updated, we would greatly appreciate it. Did you try bolting up the 08 calipers to the 06 knuckles? Did they fit?
My goal is to try and use all stock parts. So far I'm looking at about $550-600 in parts (calipers, disks, hubs, knuckles, bolts, brake lines), I have stock suspension on mine. I have a pic of this being done and it looks like it was done with 06 knuckles though, but I don't know what else it took to complete it. A simple bolt on setup would be nice, but I doubt it's that easy, lol, but I don't think it will be that hard. I agree, it looks like Yamaha was trying to set it up with rear brakes on the older ones.
Dirtysidedown, if you try that this week, keep us posted too. Thanks,
