Good luck with that one. Yeah, they make em, but they are junk and eat the drum up, and with little wear, they eat the drum.I think PBI makes down to a 49 for the XL drums, but have heard of chain clearance issues on the drum as it drops the chain closer to the outside of the drum.
I think he was talking about the rear brake.I'm gonna have to disagree with the statement that discs dont stop the bike any faster then drums. Of course on the rear both will lock up the wheel, but on the front the Brembo caliper I have on my 74 stops WAY better then any front drum.
Oh yea for sure. Thats why my rear disc is a Nissin 2 piston from a rice rocket mounted to be full floating. Call me crazy, But I LIKE good brakes.I think he was talking about the rear brake.
I'll have to agree with both of you. The drum on the back of a Sportster, if set up correctly, I've found to be vastly superior to a factory rear disc brake. As far as a front brake goes, a disc wins hands down in my opinion.
