1,,,if you have a wire wheel ,it will simply entail sending in or us building /sending you a kit

2,,,the Galfers and their green pad combo is a favorite,,,they are lighter and work better than most stock set-ups...

3,,regarding swapping to one rotor ...most folks won't be needing the additional braking off-road that a dual disc set-up offers,,,then you have the additional handling gains off-road that a lighter set-up offers. FYI,,converting to one disc will make it harder to squeeze the brake often necessitating a smaller diameter master cylinder....some folks like that it is harder[oops that didn't sound right],,,because they can't over-brake in the dirt/loose stuff

gotta run
