    After looking for months I was never able to find where anyone had ever designed and produced a quality bracket online. So, I designed and made a bracket that you can use a Banshee Rear Hydro Brake Caliber using your existing Blaster Rear Housing and Bracket, eliminating the need to switch to a Banshee Housing. Also with simple materials purchased at a local hardware store I installed the brake lever and plunger to the frame. Some cutting and grinding are required for this part. I did have to purchase a longer brake line because I have an extended swing arm but as you can see in my photo I purchased one too long. A new shorter one on its way to clean it up.


    Anyone interested send me a PM and I will send you a full-scale detail of my bracket you can print out and the parts list you will need to purchase from your local hardware store. You will need to purchase your own Rear Banshee Caliber set up, there are plenty on ebay.

    Not too sure on how to send a PM, but I am interested on the rear brake build for the Blaster.
    Thanks in advance!

    STORMTROOPER I will put the list together and post, BUT I will have to figure out how to post a detail drawing of the bracket and attach that you can print so it is the correct scale ? I haven't been on this site for awhile and it seems to have changed with a lot more features. One of these fancy buttons I probably can use.

    Looks good. Only thing I have never been a fan of is a floating caliper and 88-02 style floating blaster axle. It will go through pads much faster with both floating. I prefer atleast one component to be fixed.
