XT 350? maybe? disk brake for XT500

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a restore/upgrade on a XT 500 and would like to do a disk on the front. I think the easiest way would be to swap out the fork legs and all and keep the existing tree. Can any one measure and tell me what bike runs a disk front brake with 36mm fork legs?

Thanks a lot

my xt 350 measures 35 mm but that is with these cheap plastic calipers and my it175 measures the same so it might just be 36mm.

you are really not limited to the xt line though. I had an xt 600 with yz250 front end usd type.

by the time you buy forks rim and master cylinder a tripple tree is not much more

Good advice, but I'm concerned about the rake if I change triple tree. I've heard some on here about forks hitting the tank. No chance of that with stock rake and length. The more flexiblity the better though, since this is probably a wrecking yard adventure.
