Does anyone have any front brake calipers that will bolt up to the super atv mounts? I bought a bunch of parts off a 4x4 rancher to convert mine and didn't realize the 2x4 and 4x4 use different brake drums. I have everything minus calipers off the super atv kit to swap to discs so I think I'm going to do that if I can find some. Doesn't look like they sell them by themselves.

Called super atv today. They could special order just the calipers, but he said it would be almost the same price as the whole kit... ah well. Might end up doing the whole kit after Christmas

I called them a couple of months back and asked for the springs that go in between the pads on the caliper , they told me pretty much the same thing , the only way to get it was buy another complete kit ------ I would guess they are the middle man and the kits come from China , the Chinese style atv's would most probably use the same calipers

Just a thought, have you looked at second hand stock calipers from a foreman or Rancher? It may be cheaper to modify the mounts to suit OEM calipers.

I was thinking about both those options. All the Chinese ones I found had the banjo bolt out the top or the bottom. The super atv shows to come out the back.
I was thinking about 420 calipers. Haven't quite made up my mine if I want to try them or not.

Well that explains why I didn't even get a response when I asked to purchase the caliper mounting brackets separately...

What machine are you converting to discs Yukon?
It's a 02 rancher.

So It looks like the rancher 420 calipers mounting holes are way to far apart to work. I did find some Chinese calipers with the correct mounting bolt holes... just the banjo bolt will be out the top instead of the back

Yukon, you may be aware but thought I’d mention it anyway..
Ideally you need the banjo in the middle or bottom with the bleed nipple as high as possible.
