Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Put disc brakes on the front of the Norton Jag. Got a great deal at the LBS. They had a 30 and 50% off sale. Got a new rim, caliper and rotor. I had to weld on caliper bracket mounts and sort of messed up the paint job. I'll have to wait for better weather to test the brakes and repaint the left side of the fork. It's only 7 degrees today. What I can tell just rolling the bike forward in the garage is a dramatic improvement over the 'V' brakes which were actually pretty good. This thing grabs the wheel, right now when you clamp down on it.

And yes, I need to trim off the end of the cable but I want to test it case I need to go back to 'V' brakes I'll need that extra cable.
I'll let you know how it does on the road.
