OS Front Rotor?

Looking at going to a single OS front rotor on the front of the 990 ADV Cant seam to find one though ADV spacific.

Any one know if the make a Kit or if the 990SM version is bigger? Want to cut down on the unsprung weight on the front end and declutter a bit on the ammount of hoses

You want to keep the stock caliper and master cylinder, you just want a single, bigger rotor, right?

AFAIK, I've have read on here that the stock m/c won't work well with a single rotor, you'll need an SE m/c, or at least one with those dimensions (piston size).
As far as the rotor goes, there are floating supermoto race rotors out there, along with a caliper relocation bracket. The 950 Supermoto rotor won't work - very different front wheel.

Did some calling around and came up with nothing. SM is no issue but no one makes a kit for the Adv or OS rotor for that matter.

Craig at CJ Designs was working on a caliper relocation bracket for the 950/990's. You could give him a call and find out if that project is going anywhere.

Couple other threads on this. There was a disc/bracket combo available on E Bay that worked with the Adventure caliper. Checking in the last few weeks they appear to be no longer available. What I got was an E Bay/Chinese rotor and bracket which works with the KTM single dirt bikes (450 etc.) caliper. I had one of these calipers and am using it now. Works fine for me with 690 Enduro master cylinder. I am going to modify a bracket to accept the Adventure caliper which uses a 20% bigger pad.

FWIW

Spencer,

This is the thread about how I did the conversion on my 950SE. Unfortunately the Braking caliper relocation bracket seems to no longer be available.

I see you were asking about the SM parts. The 950 SM uses radial mount calipers. So any bracket for a conventional mount caliper would not work. I had an SM but don't know the size of the discs or whether they would bolt on to the Adventure wheel. SM uses cast wheels.

The E Bay kit I bought came with a 330 mm disc and relocation bracket. As I mentioned, bracket will not work with Adventure caliper, without modification.

I only asked about the SM because I was hoping for a quick fit but they obviously wont work seems that there are a few ways to get something like this but alot of what has been used is no longer available.

KTM twins told me they are working on an OS kit for the 1190 but I could care less about that thing, not sure why they were trying to tell me about that.

Anyway Im going to keep looking Im sure Ill get something bolt on, well hopefully

Thanks for the link Brent still have to go through and see whats still available that people got to work.

The Braking 320 mm or ktm hardparts 320mm disc designed for 450 smr/exc models will fit the adv wheel but the adapter will not fit the adv caliper. It will fit the forks so you could use an exc caliper.
