It DOESN'T work!

The pump is very strong , as it is designed for operating with 2 brakes , and braking on loose surfaces has now become an act of balance and precision. Squeeze it a bit much and you loose it , don't squeeze it and you never stop!
What I suggest is using both front calipers.

Leipsippos,

I was riding with an 06 rider last weekend who had converted to one disc, and it DOES work! You simply have to swap out the master cylinder for a model that is used with one front disc. The folks in this thread may not have posted that bit, but look at my post above for links to other threads that certainly have that info.

BTW, he converted to one because he found 2 to be TOO POWERFUL offroad, which is probably why you were contemplating loosing one eh?
