    I sent an email to moto masters in (belgium?) asking about abs single disk kits this is what I got...

    Thank you for your interest in Moto-Master products.

    We supply replacement discs for the 990 Adventure but no single-disc kit.

    Best regards,

    So is there another moto master?
    Is this a complete kit or are you guys just piecing it yourself, if so who machining caliper bracket.

    I have fitted this system to my DL650 (spoked front) and I have a caliper bracket the same as listed above 211022 unused. Let me know if your after it. Also a 640 adv front fender not being used if someone wants to cut one up to try.

    well i just mounted this whole moto-master brake system to my 950 adventure i used the 320mm flame rotor and
    moto-master master cylinder i got the whole kit off an inmate on here( thanks Lukas) i used spacers that measured 4.74 mm thick as they were what i could get but there is enough room between the caliper and the spokes. i was also able to mount the speedo sensor in the stock location as i used button head bolts to mount brake disk, i also removed a little material from where the sensor mounts and the speedo works like normal. i rode the bike a few times and did some hard braking tests and one more problem i did find which hasn't been mentioned on here is that
    the little buttons that make the disk floating can rub the bottom of the fork under really hard braking or if you bottom out the fork. i took about half a mm off the little buttons with a grinder and i think that has cured the problem. this system looks great and works great, the feel at the lever is way better than the stock brakes and there is lots of braking power, when i was testing the system on pavement i could easily lock up the front tire when i wanted to. the
    big bonus is the weight savings you can really feel the difference 3kg of unsprung weight off the front end makes, this bike always wheelied but now it's easier and i found sliding the bike on dirt roads thru the corners is a lot more controlled now like a smaller normal dirt bike. i would highly recommend this kit there is a lot of tight tolerances and
    it is rather expensive but i think the way it transforms the handling and braking of this bike are worth it.

    Glad to hear that you are happy Leland! :beer

    Let's see some pics (you can email them to me if you don't know how to post them)! I still haven't gotten around to put my Motomaster setup on the bike, finally managed to get the BMW ABS working with the stock KTM dual caliper brake system so I am a bit reluctant to mess with it. :D

    Thanks for the advice Flanny.

    I have a 950SE and need to upgrade the front brake. Does anyone know what caliper / adapter and rotor to buy? Motostrano told me they diddnt have anything. What application are you guys using ?

    any ktm supermoto rotor, the 320 adaptor from the lc4's or exc's will fit. With some modification! One pin nerds to be ofset and pass need some grinding. Or take an exc clipper with it.

    For better performance a 4 pot for ktm, like the braking one, but you will have issue's clearing a 21 inch with just about any 4 pot.

    Just fitted a 320 Braking rotor with the lc4 caliper AND the 950 adventure master cylinder. The larger piston master alone is a big improvement. Initial bite is reduced slightly but sponginess is gone as well as fluid boil. Overall braking is excellent and very powerful once you apply some force. Only downside is that the surface of the braking pad of the lc4 caliper I used is smaller than oem and does not cover the inner portion of the disc area. Will go back to the oem caliper at some point with some sort of 300-to-320 spacer.

    I strongly recommend the larger master as an initial mod, you might not need anything else once you've done that.

    So best solution for SE is to go for a Motomaster 320?

    Great thread! I am working on single disc conversion for my 2007 Adventure, removing ABS too. I'd love to find a deal on the Moto Master 4 piston caliper. But, has anyone tried a 320mm rotor with stock Adventure caliper relocated and SE master?

    Anyone have parts to sell for the conversion?

    Thanks

    it's not the 320mm disc but just thought i'd add this review, we do a lot of serious downhill runs and wanted the best rotors possible, no fade or issues with the flame series...
