    My son and I have been wanting to put hydraulic rear brakes on his Blaster. I searched the forum and never really found a whole lot on this conversion so I figured I would post a couple of pics on how we managed to make them work.

    We found a complete rear brake assembly from a Raptor 660 on ebay. I really don't have any dimensions. We just used cardboard to cut the patterns and mark the holes.

    Spacers welded to the bracket to get the caliper at the right distance to the disk.

    Sorry for the fuzzy pic. Hopefully you get the idea.

    Here is the tab welded to the back of the stock brake lever.

    We had to make a small tab for the reservoir.

    Completed and works Great!!

    pretty much like the gixxer set up , bracket is essentially the same . Looks great , way better than the cable mechanical fiasco they originally came with

    where is your return spring for the cable? i think this is by far the best setup ive seen, so im gonna do this on mine. my only problem is once you remove the bracket where the old brake cable sat and the return spring hooked up, where do you hook up the new return spring?

    very nice DIY! Just for everyone out there, the raptor 660 and the banshee rear calipers are the same.
