    Just picked up a 98 Blaster a couple weeks ago, anyone know of any rear brake calipers and masters that fit for pretty cheap?

    Yup, any Blaster/Banshee/Warrior/Raptor hydraulic brakes can be made to fit with minor welding and adaptors.

    Brake pedal has to modified as well.

    Word of advice: Keep the length of the pedal from pivot to MC clevis the same or near as stock as possible. If it's longer you loose mechanical advantage over the Master cylinder, poor feel in the pedal/increased effort to apply brakes. Ask me how I know this :rolleyes:
