Hi TJ,

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, a front drum brake bike can be converted to a front disc brake. You would need the following from a 2001 and up model year bike, minimum:

-Front wheel hub with brake disc and front axle
-Front brake caliper, brake line, brake lever/handlebar perch with master cylinder
-Lower left fork leg

The easiest way to perform this mod would be to find an entire front end from a 2001 and up model year bike.

They have these front ends stocked at most Yamaha dealers, about $4600, a bit pricey but they do throw in the rest of the bike for free.:D I have an earlier and a later TW, I don't notice a bunch of difference in stopping power between the 2 except on long down hills on the street, the disc is a more fade resistant. Off road I prefer the drum.
