    Just finished my front Disk Upgrade by putting a lighter drilled Disk on. Ditched the dual disk for single Disk and Brembo. So now I am looking for something on the rear that bolts on. Keeping stock calipers but lighter drilled rotors would be nice. I have done a search but nothing yet. I know they are 267mm. Anyone done one and know of one?

    IMG_0082.jpg I've done it.
    I used a rear caliper holder from an XS1100. I had to modify the brake stay mount a little and use some spacers but it went together fine.
    Mine's a little odd since I also have the XS500 rear wheel.

    Do you have a disc on the rear now? If so just drill what you have with a pattern to match the front.
    There are not many disc rear wheels that are a straight up bolt in. The XS650 disc cast wheel is about the only that is. Most others need some mods to work.
    If on a stock bike it's not work the work. Just tune up the drum brake.
    On a bike that has been hardtailed then the swap isn't so bad. Hardtails can be altered to fit a wider wheel easier than the stock swingarms and have more room to mount the M/C.

    I used one from a Maxim, it’s 5mm thick vs 7mm stock and slotted so much lighter.
