Recommendations on Sprocket/Brake combo

My good friend has a bike built around a Santee frame. I think the frame is a 230 frame, but they stuck a 250 tire there with a belt pulley. We're thinking of moving him onto a sprocket system to space out the rear wheel correctly because the pulley is dangerously close to the swingarm's upper tube.

What a low cost / decent quality solution for an integrated rotor/sprocket combo?

That's a good question. Don't think low cost/decent quality go hand in hand when it comes to brake parts. I would contact Scooters for an Exile setup. My bud bought one from John recently. He had the best price, and great service as well.

You say the sprocket is dangerously close to the swingarm's upper tube. I don't understand your concern.

The sprocket moves with the swingarm and will get no closer.

That old addage, "an inch is as good as a mile" is apropos here!

Why worry about it? Save the money for a better use.

The distance is less than a few thousands. The reason the few thousands clearance exists is because the pulley ate into the swing arm and removed some material. If someone goes to buy that bike in the future - they would think an idiot built it. The bike was originally built by a place called Canyon Hills Customs here in SF Bay Area. He bought the bike and we've been fixing it one problem at a time.

I should post a picture of what his setup looks like - you guys would all be concerned if you say it too.

The HHI is prolly the nicest one out it has a 4 piston caliper and hhi is great quality parts. I have sold the exile and flyrite and even the new pm setups but I sell the hhi setup more than all the others combined. Its hard to be on a budget when you are messing with brakes but if he doesnt want to spend the buks on a pulley brake setup why dont he just convert the bike to a chain they are much thinner than a belt and might give him the clearance he needs.

John, thanks for tip on HHI - he is leaning that direction. The main goal is to go to a chain final drive so he can properly space the rear wheel. Since he wants to go to chain, I mentioned the sprocket/brake combo. Probably the easiest and low cost thing is to go with a plain sprocket and leave the brake alone. I'll have him give you a call when he decides what to buy. Thanks.

I wouldn,t even bother looking at the two piston set ups if you actually want some real stopping power! I have a two piston sprockster that is similar too the exile set up..................i didn,t expect it to be great, but i will be changing to a 4-pot as soon as i can afford one, its that bad!!!

Definatly go HHI. Acually HHI is cheaper that most of the imports. You jsut have to find the right dealer that isn't selling at MSRP. The MSRP of HHI is quite a bit more than dealer cost. I can shoot you a price. Also the price is the same for polished, chrome or anodized.

Why in the hell would you want somthing that is that large and weighs a ton? That would make a marginal brake ever worse. Really if your going that route and don't have a state regualtion requiring a rear brake you might as well save your money and not even runa rear brake.

Also they claim on there site thtat their braking performace is eqivulent to stock harley rear rotors. I call BULL SHIT on that.
