86trx 350 rebuild with disk brakes!

hey guys been waiting for the day to start my build thread. i bought my quad a few months back even though i wasnt ready to buy 1. now the time has come to make it mine. it showed up as a fully working bike except for front brakes, cooling fan, and a good battery, oh and there was a front driveshaft in a box of parts because the one on the bike is in pieces in the swingarm! it has a winch and 12" yamaha wheels with 26" vampires, and custom wide fenders.
the first week i took the bike out it broke down, just died, had to be towed in. all of a sudden i was knee deep in a project i wasn't ready for. i had to learn the ignition system and fuel system and do some heavy problem solving. long story short the stator and pulse generator got replaced and baam it came back to life.
i've ridden it alot since then and it's proved reliable, except the winch doesnt winch at all. but now i'm at the point of affording a quad so now it gets fixed up.

i'm rebuilding the limited slip in the front diff hopefully to solve my clacking noise when i turn. when i tore the front end down all the bearings and gears look excellent. the front driveshaft is now in place also.

now for the upgrade! i rebuilt the front master cylinder and installed super atv's front disk brake conversion. i bled the lines out earlier and i cant wait to try it out

nah my cv's are good, it's more of a popping when you take off in a circle, where 1 wheel spins faster than the other.

well gotthe front diff all hooked up so i set the wheels on and went for a spin around the yard. i cant tell any difference with it being 4wd now, though the popping in the front is cured. the front brakes work awesome! i didnt go too fast but the definitly haul the bike down in a hurry. i spent the rest of the day cleaning the mud off, wiring the winch, and extending the vent tubes toward the snorkel. next on my list is to redo the front bumper so it can handle the bigger winch (when you see the pics you'll know what i mean). i also have to wire in my 94 civic cooling fan along with a disconnect switch so it doesnt try and come on if it's submerged.

I'd love to hear any issues with the front brake install. My wheel cylinders are siezed up and they're awfully expensive. Might as well upgrade while I'm in there.

Click the image to open in full size.

the brackets that held the fairlead were not welded on the bottom so i chopped em off and welded a plate withholes cut in it for mounting and the cable to pass through. also got a new 3000 winch on clearance for 140 bucks. way excited bout that.

next up i wired a fan override switch and an idiot light to indicate my fan module wants the fan on. i built a stainless panel to house this along with another switch for turning my fogs on. i put the panel on my fender where the hour meter used to be.
