Time for some more work on Yajuu

I need to do something serious about the front brakes on this bike

Current front end is XR/XL 250 Disc brake set up. 38mm forks Honda XR-250R (84-85)

Question is, what will fit on here Disc wise and calliper wise?

I can fabricate an adapter bracket for a calliper if needed.

Or what else runs 38mm forks, that would be suitable for a swap over?

Looking at the thread below, not much on offer in 38's

Disc is gonna be a bit trial and error. 4 bolt rotor, I think newer Kawasaki KXf bikes are 4 bolt. not sure if it is the same pattern and bolt centerline though.
Caliper wise, about ANYTHING newer will work better but you will need to make an offset for the bigger rotor. The master cylinder may also be an issue though, getting the right MC bore and caliper piston size ratio is critical.

Rotor diameter is probably the biggest issue, that thing is a tea cup saucer, you need a dinner plate.

this one indicates it will fit '84-'04, but the link to the bracket is iffy, re: fitment - likely the same rotor w/different caliper for later years?
270 mm rotor:

320mm rotor bracket (rotor will fit, but not the bracket?):

Well I just went out, after having the heli-coil inserted to secure Number 4 spark plug, just gave it a kick in the guts

That was a K100 built by Buckscreek for Scrapheap. Last year it was a sidecar, which had a little mishap on the way home, necessitating a few dyas in Hospital for the rider and passenger and a full rebuild for 2013.

Well after being asked how much this bike weighed, I went out and bought a set of $8.00 bathroom scales from K-Mart.

Front axle is 82kg and rear is 94kg making total mass of 176kg (388lbs)

I reckon I could lose a few kilograms with lighter rear guard, tail light and rack.
