Rear exhaust

Do any of you have a stock rear can gathering dust that they might want to sell me cheap? Mine has many rust holes and cracks and is getting unusually loud. I would prefer it not rusty or holey.

Had some time today so I grind the bolt out of the swing arm... Was all melted together with the spacer that's why was free spinning

Next I used the heat gun to melt the locktite on the ex bolts and free the disk from the wheels
Took the callipers apart... Find out that my rear calliper had both of the rubber pistons missing... front calliper was very rusty...
Should I wire brush and paint or go and get some aftermarket ones (original are stupid expensive).

Need to buy the bearing puller ... Something like that perhaps... http://www.enduroforkseals.com/id197.html.

Next on the list take apart the forks and bring the frame to the powder coating

I was able to clean mine up and put new seals in them.

The important part of the caliper is the inside bore. The outsides can be cleaned up and coated (with the bores masked off) or painted.

If the bores are in good shape and not pitted, reused them. Inspect the pistons and if not badly pitted these can be cleaned up with 000 steel wool. The pistons can be replaced if bad and are much less expensive and the entire caliper.

Then put in new seals and you should be OK

Small lines inside the bore like fine scratches... Time for new callipers.

Probably going for discs and brake lines too ... If I can find something that will fit my '91.

On that note does anybody know if brake disks post 96 will fit a classic '91?
Finding lots of aftermarket on ebay but all for post 96 dr, only original expensive stuff for mine.

Thank you people really appreciate your ideas and tips

I can only speak for the front and it is a sure NO. The post '96 rotor is larger in circumference and has 5 holes for mounting. The rears look similar, but haven't put the two side by side since I don't want any more spare parts for I bike I don't have.

I did find aftermarket for both front and rear for my 1990... I will get back to you if I can find the links again.

*******Addition********
Home now and I dug through yee 'ole email box and found I bought the front rotor from Summit Racing. It was on back order and took over a month for me to see it. It was about $100US.

I only had luck finding it by searching with the part #MD6076D.

Google "MD6076D" and you will get plenty of hits like this one for $99 from EBC.
http://www.amazon.com/EBC-Brakes-MD6.../dp/B00666C4LU

For the rear rotor I used ebay. Got the disc and pads for around the same price.

Cheers!

Question FMF or others...

I have been getting an itch to spend some more money on the DR. I like the look and sound of FMF but will entertain any bargain out there.

I see all the aftermarket pipes are set up for the gerneric looking, post '96 SE models. So my question is, if one were to install directly to the classic, old school DR would it require any modifications?


Thanks!
