Yamaha XS650 Twin Front Disk Conversion

When I started building my street tracker I found a 19" front wheel that was set up with twin disks.  To convert the bike to dual front disks I also will need a left side caliper, larger master cylinder, twin disk manifold and the brake line for the left side.  Not many Yamaha XS650s had the twin disks and finding a used left side caliper was proving difficult.  It appears that an XS1100 caliper will bolt right on.  I found a good deal on line from Boise Vintage Cycle and Salvage.  I will add photos and info as I gather the necessary components.

New master cylinder installed.

New dual disk manifold installed.

Brake parts needed to convert to dual disk brakes: Larger master cyclinder, manifold, and brake lines.  Parts were purchased from Mike's XS.

Bolted in place with right side caliper in the background.
