This has come up a few times.

Can anyone advise of where I could get a good deal on the 1800 setup (rotor, caliper and braket), or

does anyone know of a machine shop in the Buffalo, NY area that you would recommend to mod my 1300 rotor?

This site has more info. than google...Thanks!

Going up to Port Dover Canada for Friday the 13th..hope to see some VTX's

An 1800C rotor is $100 on HDLs site. If I can't find one I'm gonna buy one.

Either way I'd have to get another rotor..either it be a 1300 or an 1800, no down time this way.

Watch the classifieds here for an 1800.

Contact the trike conversion shops. They will have the whole 1800 setup. I prefer the 1800 setup because of the increased braking performance.

I totally agree, after having just done it myself last weekend. The added braking ability of the 1800 caliper was the first thing I noticed as far as the bike's "behavior change" from the mod. It is a very nice change, and already may have saved me from bambi, I swear I woulda hit the little :cus: with the old brakes...it was real close, and I much prefer to use a bow or gun. :wink:

Would you care to upgrade from the Possum Pusher to the Bambi Basher?

Nah, bambi gets too damn big to "bash" with the x, but if you come out with the "basher" for a dodge truck let me know. :lol:

Actually my pusher isn't even on right now, I thought I could handle the body work myself and um, eh,............ I kinda can't :oops: . Found out the hard way that turning wrenches and doing sanding/paint work are in two waaaaaaaaaaaay different ball parks. :cry:

:lol:, don't you hate those damn little critters, always jumping out in front of ya. The stop signs around here are known for that. I may or may not have killed a few with my cage in my early years of driving, they just run out and boom it's too late.

I think maybe a "curb crusher" though, I wouldn't want to try and push one.

Never heard of a "hare splitter". Now, I did hear that a certain resonator making member used to have a "hair splitter", but when his hair decided to split, he got rid of it. :lol: (sorry, I had too)

This is Steve when he was a skate punk....

You know when I told you to abuse that thing, I meant just for the product testing period. Damn, boy, you're hard on your toys.

Lol..yeah. It's bad...I wanted to abuse it before paint. Oh well, i've got some good ideas forming and the one small crack won't be an issue to cover. Plus it's on the bottom.
