The rear disk has been done . A kit may be handy. this is an old post one how it was done.
maybe some from you has seen this topic NEW BRAKES !!!! from AFISHALBIZ about the 320 brake disk conversion.
He was the first one from the US who as bought this brake disk kit.
I've received 2 weeks ago a massage from a TW driver in Singapore, he also want to buy a 320 kit.
But there is a problem, I don't have the adapters on stock.
To make just one adapter is really expensive, so I have to make more than just one.
My problem is, that I don't have the financial reserve to make some new.
I have to make minimum 3 adapters to make no loss.
It would be great, if 2 or 3 TW drivers from the US will also order a 320 kit from me.
You can see here the different designs from the brake disk:
std. disk .................................. wave disk .................................. teeth disk

1. -TWdude26 from singaporebikes.com
-> 2 more buyers needed to make TWdude26 happy.
This kit will also fit on the Yamaha XG250 Tricker (was this bike also available in the US?).
And it should also fit on the Yamaha XT225 and TTR230. These bikes does have the same brake disk diameter and I've seen a picture on the Yamaha website and it seems, that they have the same brake caliper.
Oh, I think I should also write down the prices:
- 95.91 EUR for the std. disk (instead of 104.13 EUR)
- 99.01 EUR for the wave disk (instead of 107.22 EUR)
- 99.01 EUR for the teeth disk (instead of 107.22 EUR)
- 58.91 EUR for the adapter
If there is a question, don't hesitate to ask me.
This kit is for the front wheel, not for the rear.
It would be an interesting job, to make a adapter to convert a drum brake model to a disk brake model without changing the fork tube and the front hub.
Back to topic.
Who else (with a disk brake model) is interested?
Can you post a picture that is much closer so we can see what is involved in making the conversion? I see only two prices for three different discs, are the two on the right side the same price? Are you willing to share what bike the discs are originally made for?
Np problem, here is the picture:
I've changed the first post a little bit.
Now there is a short description under the disk designs and 3 prices for 3 disks.
These disks are originally for the TW!!!!!!
They are direct made for the TW!!!
I've send the needed measurements to the factory and they make the disk for me.
This disk will also fit on the XT250, but this bike will need a other adapter.
Unless I missed it,I see the EURO cost,but what is that in U.S. dollars?. Thanks
All disks have the same outer diameter. Just the 2 pictures are a bit smaller.
The material? I don't know the exact type of steel. It is a std. brake disk steel, not stainless or cast iron.
Yes, you can get only the disk without a adapter.
The the base for the USD price is the EURO price.
Here are the prices, based on the current exchange rate (1.00 EUR = 1.2957 USD):
124.27 USD - 95.91 EUR for the std. disk
128.29 USD - 99.01 EUR for the wave disk
128.29 USD - 99.01 EUR for the teeth disk
76.33 USD - 58.91 EUR for the adapter
