Foreman disc brake conversion

Picked up an 03 Foreman 450 last night and it has no front brakes. Looking at the dics brake conversation - anyone have any experience with it? I was told it was junk and not worth the $$$ but dang I remember how much of a pain the drums are to deal with.

What's all involved with changing it over and whats your thoughts on the kit?

thanks

my buddy had a kit on his old 450 foreman and it seemed to work pretty good. better than the drums on my old 03 rubi lol. so glad honda finally went to disk brakes. he bought the bike with the kit on it so i have no idea what it was like to install but he never had any problems with the brakes while he owned it

SATV all the way.

Don't waste your time cleaning up wheel cylinders and replacing shoes etc...slap on the kit from the guys over at SATV and forget about it...

If you take your time its about a 1hr install.

Only way to go IMO.
