    Let's just start off by saying this is NOT a "how do I convert my crap drum brakes to disc brakes" thread.

    Anyways, I picked up a full front brake setup from a 2004 Blaster for $150 last night in Scranton, PA.
    I've been looking online and this brake setup is expensive, even with going the KOR route, but I'm a cheapskate, and went this route.

    Anyways, I also bought a full Galfer Braided Line Kit w/distribution block for $60, new front rotors (the ones I got are completely out of spec.) for another $60, and a new master cylinder for another $15.

    Grand Total for everything minus the covers: $285.

    Now, has anyone ran ASV levers or some other form of "unbreakable" levers?
    I had a set on my old YZ250 and they were amazing.

    I'm running a set of ProTaper Seven-Eighth's bars with the CR-High bend (yes, I know, it's an MX bar).

    Sweet deal. It appears they're back-ordered (go figure).
    Last time I went to order levers from ASV it took them almost THREE MONTHS for them to make them for the YZ.

    Yes. I poop enough. I don't need to poop when I try to stop now.

    I did last time. They say "in stock" but if I go through ASV directly or one of their vendors, it takes forever
