    Might be worth a cognito-moto offset tree for that R4 front end. Might be cheaper than re-engineering the whole thing again.

    same diameter



    same offset

    as you can see in this picture above the friction zone for the new rotor is will only accept the 2 piston caliper no the original single piston one



    no clearance issues other than the little rubber boot around my speedo cable rubbed a bit (not shown in this picture)bit i just trimmed the boot with a razorblade and it fit perfect



    i also used a scotch bright pad on the inner aluminum carrier to get rid of that "pot metal" diecast surface



    parts used: from the top down

    1. stock or equal aftermarket cx500 master cylinder

    2. i recommend a steel braided brake like

    the above is optional so mroe importantly...

    3. 2 piston caliper off of a cb900F

    4. EBC brake rotor MD1036LS for the left side rotor MD1036RS for the right side rotor


    A couple of questions for you Adam. How big of a performance difference in terms of breaking did you notice overusing the stock caliper rotor and master cylinder? When I replace my brakes I plan on using this method I do not however think that I need drilled rotors.
    1979 Honda CX500 Deluxe strictly stock for now.
