    The difference in braking is tiny, the disc isn't much of an improvement. I've owned both and I prefer the drum, no seals, O rings, hoses or master cylinders to leak and go bad.

    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    If you find an old enough drum brake one it'll have drains that make changing fork oil EASY. I think it was around '95 they lost the drains, but the casting boss is there. I had the lowers on my '99 drilled and tapped for drains when I built Lzrdbrth franken forks. There is no boss on the '04 disc brake lowers.
    I've about decided to convert my '04 to drum with drains.

    How much of a liability are the genuine Japanese bikes over there? Always wondered what the parts situation might be.

    I think Spudrider has freely exchanged a number of Zongshen engine parts with Yamaha parts so I'm assuming the reverse would be true. I know some of the indigenous knockoffs run fat 15" rear tires but what's the sitch on 14's?



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Don't get the first model year. My 87 has a totally unique electrical system. Stick with the 88-00
