KLR650 dual piston caliper and oversize rotor kit

Has anyone tried one of these?




For the price it cant be beat. It even comes with the brake pads.
Mine will arrive on Friday. I hope I'm not the guinea pig!

Yow! Nice....please let us know how it works. Is this for the 2008 model, or is it for the older ones, like mine?

Kawi upgraded to a dual caliper for '08. This is for the pre'08.

Keep us posted. Anything to help that feeble front brake.

You mean a dual piston caliper.

I have the Cyclebrakes kit and I have been very pleased with it.

I am interested to hear the results from this kit.

Thanks

I dunno, at the price it starts to fall into the "too-good-to-be-true" zone. I would like to see someone create a bracket that allows you to mount a caliper from another widely available bike, like an EX500 or something like that. Last I knew Eagle Mike was afraid to mass produce it or something.

I looked up the brake pad number listed for the kit and it fits a dozen or more different mid 80's Hondas.

Therefore, I'm betting that the caliper came off a Honda and they are common as mud.

Again, my Cyclebrakes wave rotor kit will lock up the front wheel, but I still am curious about the performance of this kit.

Thanks

You are probably right Stu. They must just do a good job of cleaning it up then. I assume that it uses all of the KLR's plumbing though?

p.s. how much did the wave rotor kit set you back? I'm thinking of getting some sort of brake upgrade sometime and naturally I want the cheapest

Someone on the other(in my world) site did it.

I think this is the same item someone on klr650.net bought and installed.
