dual caliper bracket E

Recommended Posts

Using my common garage tools I made a dual caliper bracket for my E. Many of you may already know, the E/S swimgarm is different than the SM and no one makes a dual caliper bracket for it(50stunt makes one for the SM). My band saw blade was too dull yo cut the aluminum so I used the drill press and drilled many perimeter holes then used a jig saw to cut it out. To machine the oem bracket, I used my drill press, locked the handle, clamped it in a harbor freight milling vise (~$30) and went at it with a random cutting bit I had laying around. To attach the 2 pieces together I did a face to face LTAB(low temp aluminum brazing ~900°), then LTAB the entire perrimiter followed by drilling and tapping 1 bolt(for good measure). The caliper is a front right 2 piston caliper off of a Kawasaki ninja 650r(~$40 on ebay). The whole set up has been on the bike for a month or so and works fantastic. I also swapped out the rear master cylinder woth a crf450 unit. It has a smaller piston. The smaller piston gives more pedal movement and a tad more feel imo(not as big as the hype i have read). Thanks for reading

The other line goes to the left,so i would say yes as is typical in the stunting world,left side rear brake and clutch for better control.

 

Nice job on the fabrication.Chain drilling is slow to be sure but very effective when other methods aren't available.

Cool! So, is one a hand brake?

Yes, the master cylinder is on the left under the clutch lever.

Bumtarder, thank you

Is there a reason most people go with a 2 piston caliper for the left hand rear brake?

It has quite a bit of power for how light the bikes are. The sportbike stunters use dubble, even triple and even quad 4-6 piston calipers with a 320mm rotor. The 650r caliper comes with a mounting locations to build a bracket too. That oem mount allows the caliper to float as it should.
