Budget Bobber Build #27

In this episode we install new front disc or rotor and caliper on Gilby the Yamaha XV250, Virago 250, V-star 250 or Route 66.
We are then forced to re-install the OEM caliper due to the terrible quality of the Chinese caliper and the inability to bleed it due to cross threaded bleed valve and the rounding off og the bleed valve head.

DO NOT BUY THESE CALIPERS!

A chain mod from 114 links to 112 is required. I used a new 520 O-Ring Chain of 120 links and cut 8 links to make the 112 link chain. it is reccomended new sprockets with a new chain. This waa bought from the local motorcycle shop.
