    Hey, guys, I was wondering how do I convert my 2001 Yamaha blaster to hydraulic brakes. I searched around and there are some options but nothing like a bolt on and go. I dont know how to make a new mount to hold the hydraulic pump tho. Any help or links to youtube videos that will help me? Thanks in advance.

    making the brackets is the easy part, mounting the master to the bracket with everything aligned correctly so the pedal extension pushes the rod into the master perfectly straight for proper function is the tricky part for most who attempt this, an 03+ pedal/peg will not work with this style setup in my experience, an extension welded to the cable brake pedal worked best for me.

    this blaster started out as a stock 2001, then I put everything on a titled 2006 frame as I started modifying it,
    I cracked that frame near the front left a-arm and everything is now on a 2003 frame.

    Personally, I would go ahead and go hydraulic. If you have any questions then just go ahead and let me know I will help you the best I can.
