fishfiles I can see how a wet kit would cost a lot and the problem would be that every model would have to be a little different with hoses , fittings and brackets , so there would be too many variations to making kits practical -----I need to add it all up money wise , I am doing front and rear disc with hydraulics on all wheels right now and if I had to guess I got $750 plus into it , used a bunch of stuff I had , bought used masters ---- if I added labor on top of that , I would guess , if you bought a complete kit ( front and rear conversions and hydraulics ) ready to go , it would cost between $1,200-1,500 , that would include a left hand master and the front left and foot pedal plumbed together ------I think if someone where to cut the cost with the cheapest Chinese masters , tubes and hoses , and used cheap labor , it would be around a $1,000

Hey man!
Yeah, I definitely brought some attention to the kit. I don't have any major updates or exact eta's, but I know its been on the list. New machines and new products always end up pushing the retrofitted upgrades on the back burner...but it is in the works! Thanks for bringing it up. I'll rattle some cages.

fishfiles If you notice , SuperATV and Highlifter both come out with kits , then when the new models come out , the older model kits get dropped = doubt we will see any new 300 , 350 , 450 kits coming out

What would you pay for a quality hydraulic rear disc brake kit?

We have an awesome front disc brake kit, but we understand the current mechanical rear kit can be a bear to adjust to your liking. The current kit is $229.95, and converting our kit to hydraulic would be more expensive. We want to know what a fair price point would be and if it would be worth converting it?

I'll pass along your interest to see if something can be done when we work on the hydraulic upgrade to the rear kit.

I have most of the replacement parts you need if you want to get them from us. They are all pressed into the hubs already, so we don't have any individual bearings laying around. We can definitely get you replacement hubs if you want with the bearings already pressed into them. I can get you this week's forum code if you want to go that route and call in the order. If you'd like to find your own, they are pretty much the same as an OE replacement.
Front for the 2wd kit: 20x42x12mm (out of stock)
Rear: 58x28x16mm
I have a question on replacement parts (I sent in an email and didn't get a response).

I currently have one of your disc conversions for a 300FW. I will be ordering two more as I finish projects. On my 500's and 420 I keep extra knuckles around so that when bearings wear out I have another knuckle ready to swap in. Speeds things up a little and then I can replace bearings and ball joints when I have more time.

I asked about ordering the caliper mounting brackets (if they are available separately, and if so, what they would cost). That way I can have a set of knuckles with fresh bearings and ball joints and won't have to remove the brackets to swap the fresh knuckles on.

I've learned that on these mud and water rigs, the fewer times you have to try to remove a bolt, the less chance there is for a stripped/ broken bolt.

Can't use anti-seize on those bracket mounting bolts (really need to use locktite IMO) and those hex heads strip out easily.
No problem getting you the mounting brackets. I'll have to check on individual cost, but we can definitely do it. Just give us a call whenever you're ready, and we'll put it together. Don't forget to hit me up for the weekly discount code.

fishfiles Thanks Erik , for the numbers , I think I have talked with you on the phone before and you helped me then ?

Thanks Retro for the part number , found the 6004 2RS and order three sets which is 12 of them
04-24-2018 05:21 PM
retro So:
Front for the 2wd kit: 20x42x12mm = 6004-2RS
Rear: 28x58x16mm = 62/28-2RS

(-2RS = removable seals on both sides)

Thanks!
