Who offers a caliper adapter bracket to fit a 13in rotor? I have a 4 piston brembo I want to use with the 13in on American suspension legs.

What do ya say we keep this in true Chopped Baggers spirit and spend some more money. I'll hook ya up with a good deal on a HHI 6 piston caliper :1:

I am using just the single side. I did use the single brembo on a non 13in last year and liked it. If I was going to go up it would be straight to a Glenndyne setup. Ha! I already have a ton of things to spend money on. Namely a crate motor!

RC Components sells one. If your running smooth legs(American Suspension...etc) it need to be machined to fit. Stock style legs its a bolt on.

Not to hijack but what would the difference be between american suspension legs and stock?

I have the glenndyne setup, (not mounted yet) and Aaron told me that it didnt matter which legs I used.

I have a Glenndyne 13" rotor and had an adapter bracket from him. I changed from stock to American suspension lower legs in the process and the bracket didn't work. He took it back but wasn't making one that would work or that 16" kit at the time.

The edge toward the leg hits prior to the mounting holes lining up on the Am. Suspension. They failed to offer that info to me, but it worked out in the end.

Ok, so if im understanding correctly, I will need to machine or trim the glenndyne bracket to work with american suspension legs? I wish Aaron had told me this before, I asked him this several times and he said well our bracket is designed to work with stock legs but american suspension legs are designed to work with stock brakes so it should be all the same.

I can't really answer that for sure. Never tried the Glenndyne setup. Apparently RC Comp hadn't tried them on other than stock prior to offering them for sale. Try it and see for yourself. Really not a big machining job but would be nice to know before hand. Good luck with it.

When you say it like that, makes me think it won't work. He will take it back if that's the case, but then you have nothing.
