Recently completed my project bike after moving back home. Pretty happy with everything at the moment however I was wondering if anyone has retro-fitted a modern front brake caliper/brake system to a 78 CB400T? I'm looking for better braking power without having to do a complete forkswap etc.
Do you have a disk brake now with single piston caliper? You can easily upgrade to the twin piston caliper used on the 81 CM400C. Add a braided steel brake line, a new master cylinder and DOT4 brake fluid and you should be in good shape.
Thanks for the reply Alan. Yes I have the single piston caliper. Is it just a straight bolt on swap? Do I need the mounting bracket as well or just the caliper? I currently have an aftermarket brake cylinder however the piston diameter is the same as stock. I'm assuming that is important also? Cheers
