Just ordered a set of these for the Brute. Awesome reviews on KawieRiders.

Lee I have had them on my Brute for two years. They work just like they did when I put them on very durable!!

When you take out the old ones heat them with a torch and drive them out with a socket. I can't remember what size just find one that fits. But if you don't heat it you will be cursing them they are very tight.

That is good to read. Now at 3800 miles plus, I've only replaced one side and that was with stock parts. What a freaking nightmare that was! I look forward to having these in place. Seems like everybody likes them. I think I'll marinade them in PB Blaster for a day or two prior to breaking out the sledge hammer!!

Done. I have grease fittings now! It wasn't that hard to do. After working out a 'system' using the vise as a press, I did the second one in about 15 minutes. That first one was a real learning experience though. I like the way they go together and think they will last!





Installed new pads on the front. I knew they had to be toast. I was pleasantly surprised. There was pad left and the rotor looked great. Very Happy



I like the way the Brute is holding up. I'd buy another one Exclamation

Yes they do Bob. A SXS will probably be next but if I had it to do all over again I'd still get the Brute (at late 2007 pricing LOL)... Luckily I do not need one right now!!!

Thanks PP. I try to do my part by keeping it clean. My Wife still doesn't understand the showing up part. Laughing
