Brake Drag fix?

i wanted to know if it was possible to put the 450R brake calipers on and not have brake drag, or would i have to do the hole setup( spindles, hubs, master cylinder etc.) what other possible ways are there to fix the drag beside using springs. Does the new outlaw have drag.

I did post a threat what the motorcycle do when they squeal. Go to a autopart store and talk to them. I found out a long time ago is there is a anti squeal sticker that I as buy when changing out the brake pads. They have them for motorcycle. I just file down the edges of the pad and put gasket maker stuff where the pad touch the caliper. I will see what will happen. You can also go to a soft pad but it may wear out fast. There more info on the net if you do the search. We are not the only thing out there with disk brakes.

The Outlaws I looked at on the dealers showroom floor all has the same brake drag as the predators, so I don't know if the Outlaws brake swap out is of much value?

Tell me this, why is it such a big deal?....I guess, I don't understand.

Ok so, when the quad is in the air and, you spin the tires, it rotates 2 times instead of 5.

There is NO way there is enough mechanical resistence to this "brake drag", that it will slow you down.

I see so much effort wasted on this. Just for the simple conclusion that the wheels spin more. You can't tell me that this causes the brake pads to pre-maturely wear, either. Considering, I have gone over a year on my front brake pads and, I can probably last the summer riding season.

Settle down sweet cheeks it's just the fact that the brakes drag, bugs some guys, thats all! LOL

IMO, people would be better off doing the "Honda MC swap" Now that mod is one that makes a huge difference in how the bike feels and stops.

also you can change your full metallic brake pad if you don't like the squeal to semi-matallic or kevlar brakes pads.
