You never know, if they are 1 1/8" steerer - bicycle interchangeable - you might be able to fit a set of Monster T's on there . . .

I say don't worry .
I bought one of the last xr400r because Mr Honda said no more. Well!
1 year later the Xr400m Motard version arrived.

Bring on the Ct110M it will be faster

They don't go fast enough to need a disc brake...

Push bike brakes would be over kill on a CT110.

Posties don't use the front brake.

It's all rear brake overlapped with throttle for smooth progression between the boxes.

Replace rear pads, hone the score marks out of the rear drums.

Fronts are "sealed for life", heck, they don't even require adjustment!
