    Hello I am looking for more info on doing a hydro rear brake swap on my blaster to replace the mechanical one. I hear the gsxr brake caliper and master work with some fabrication. Any tips on which caliper to buy would help and also any tips. Thanks

    the gsxr conversions use the 04/05/06 gsxr any cc engine calipers are the only ones with 2 solid mounting points that don't involve slide pins and/or the gsxr bracket used to capture one side of the brake pads.

    but if I had to do it over again, I'd use any one of the blaster/banshee/YFZ/Raptor calipers available on ebay,
    the bracket needed for those ends up being just a straight piece of steel bolted or welded onto the cable brake axle carrier.
    the caliper is the easier part, the master bracket and having it align perfectly with the brake pedal extension is slightly more challenging.

    here's pics of the gsxr conversions
