Xbr500 suspension and brake upgrade/swap
« on: August 19, 2023, 07:47:49 AM »
Looking to start a project soon on my xbr500.
Have a good load of engine parts to increase cc's to approx 620cc. Twin carbs.
Hot cam, tuned exhaust and other mods.. cooling, ignition etc... But with all this extra go go,
I thought I'd look at improving the braking and handling.
Would like to keep the original rim diameter for asthetics but not entirely essential.
Wondering if a complete front end swap of later era that's twin disc and what rear end alloy swingarms
Fit. Have skills. Can weld and build it all myself but any advice is appreciated to ease the process through.
