Very nice Russ, I really like the white color scheme. I'm curious about your oil pump mod, did it change the pressure or volume out?

survey complete

I asked for a 1999 Transalp with XR650R forks and dual disc brakes plus a quality reservoir rear shock, that would sell well and do what my 650L and 250R cannot.

Who wouldn't want bigger brakes, have you thought about making a run of ten brackets where a guy would only need to buy your bracket, a DL caliper and an AT rotor?

Hi Lex, that's looks like a nice upgrade, did you first try and make a bracket for the stock caliper?
