improved front braking

Those wishing to make an inexpensive front brake improvement may benefit from knowing that the 1989-1990 HawkGT front rotor is 315mm in diameter and bolts directly to the Transalp front hub of the same years.

An adapter to relocate the caliper must be machined. I took the parts to a local machine shop and had no trouble having one fabricated from aluminum.

The Hawk rotor can be found used for a reasonable price.

Well worth the expense in performance upgrade.
