    Front Drum Brake Swap to Disk

    Has anyone made this swap? I’m working on it right now and would like your input?

    I have done it, but it has been a few years. What input do you need?

    Sorry, but I don't have any pics that would help.

    I swapped the parts from a complete, running 2003 TW onto my son's 1987 TW. So I used the entire front brake lever/master cylinder including the attached brake light cable assembly. I then used the 1987 brake lever/brake light cable assembly on the 2003 for a fat front wheel conversion with a drum brake. I do not remember having any issues with the wiring, so my guess is that the 2003 brake light cable was able to plug directly into the 1987's wiring harness, and vice versa.

    I hope this helps,

    Brian

    Hey Ronny,

    You could also use a universal hydraulic brake switch that just replaces the banjo bolt on your master cylinder.
