the rear wheel and caliper takes about 15 minutes , the master cylinder mount takes a while longer as you have to drill tow holes in the frame near the brake pedal BUT you have to remove the motor to install and tighten the bolts .

i took about 2 hours total time to do it all including removing the motor and everythnig .

this is well worth it , a kx65 wheel and brakes is the way to go .

post up photos when your done .

what do you have for forks ? i run kx65 with brp clamps , agressive weight springs and modified damping rods etc.

i want to say the hole was 6mm but i can't remember right now ( too early ) .

it's the same sized bolt as the ones that hold the side plates on , so i'm sure it was 6mm (slightly larger so the bolt goe's through).

The first kit's came with a bracket that mounted on the swing arm bolt. The current kit has the master bracket that mounts on the frame with two bolts and it's stronger than the first one's.
