Front brake delete

I took off one of the 2 rotor/Caliper setups to save weight and give some better feel offroad on the dirt.

Step one is to loosen the banjo bolt on the right caliper. It's messy- the brake fluid will be draining, so get something to catch it with. Wear gloves and glasses- brake fluid is NASTY to the skin and especially the eyes.



Next step- remove that bolt and put it aside. Slide a new copper crush washer on it....

Then undo the left side that has 2 lines coming into the caliper. Quickly pull that bolt out, its a long one.



Then make sure you take the one braided line from the master cylinder, slip it onto the short bolt, put another crush washer to seat the other side, and thread it into the caliper. Delete the dangling "jumper" braided brake line. Put that into a bag with the caliper and mounting bolts.

YOU ARE DONE... next step Suspension.

Pulled the forks off for the next phase. Now I have a perfectly good motorcycle pretty much demolished in my garage, up on the stand.
