PM Drive side brakes

Reading the PM website on drive side rear brakes - you need to weld on the tabs and use PM pulleys and wheels. From looking at all the bikes in magazines that use drive side they all use PM pulleys and wheels. My question is how does BBC use PM drive side conversion with Pro-One wheels and pulleys? When I talked to IHC they also use PM dive side with EVO wheels and pulleys. Hows it done??

I think PM just says that so you think you have to buy their wheels and pulleys. Actually, and I'm not 100% positive on this, but wouldn't any type of motorcycle wheel/pulley/rotor work because all things considered they're basically the same design?

I am using Pm drive side brakes, with PM wheels but I did a project a few months back using RC Components wheels and PM Drive side braking.
No problem just have to space things and line things up to suit it, where as with the PM it is pretty much weld the tabs on and every thing else falls into place.

I am using a PM driveside on my current project. I have PM wheels also, but, I dont see any reason you cant use any wheel as long as it is at least 18" in diameter. Also you have to make sure the offset is deep enough since the caliper is actually inside the diameter of the wheel. The rotor and pulley bolt on the the pulley side flange as one unit. PM hubs do have the correct spacing and when used together is a very clean setup!
Unless there is a wheel that you absolutely cant live without I would recommend using PM wheels. I believe it will save you a headache.

They can be used with the left side drive wheels and pulley you mention. Spacing can be adjusted. Some minor milling of the bracket might be necessary for proper snug fitment. And the tabs that come with the PM kit can be modified as needed to fit the swingarm style and carry the bracket properly. My tabs welded on this week for a PM left side drive kit.

PM makes the bracket to hang your caliper. It comes with weld on tabs for the swingarm. (You can only use a PM caliper on it. ) Got to have a spacer also to go between your pully and rotor.
