Trx 250 1987 drum to disc conversion
Anyone know if it’s possible to replace the knuckle and drum on a trx 250 1987 with a new disc brake set up?
The ms and the cylinders are cactus and the drum housing itself is fairly cracked from someone trying to prize it off with something. It looks like to rebuild the original brakes and knuckle is going to be a nightmare as all the seals, grease nipples, bolts, backing plate, cylinders, drum housing, shoes and spring, the lot are beyond hope. At the moment I’ve just had to remove everything and I’m running rear brakes only.
What makes it harder is I can’t find a vin number anywhere on the frame, so I’m not sure if I’m ordering the right parts. I’ve rebuilt the carby and the thing fair hooks through the bush but with rear brakes only and some pretty aggressive bear claws on the back it’s only a matter of time before I get thrown. Any insight would be appreciated.
